Apropos of the present review, these authors found that Pacific hake (as well as other important gadoids in the Gulf of Alaska, walleye pollock, Theragra chalcogramma, and Pacific cod, Gadus macrocephalus) appeared to respond more strongly to interannual variability than to decadal climate variability, and they had a statistically higher proportion of strong year classes in unusually warm years than in other years.
Other important gadoid species are haddock (Melanogrammus aeglefinus), whiting (Merlangius merlangus), blue whiting (Micromesistius poutassou), hake (Merluccius), pollack (Pollachius virens), and flatfish such as the European plaice (Pleuronectes platessa), common sole (Solea vulgaris), lemon sole (Microstomus kit), flounder (Platichthys flesus), brill (Scophthalmus rhombus), and turbot (Psetta maxima).
Work by Engas and Godo (1989a) indicates that the effective width of a demersal trawl used for sampling gadoids is related to fish size.
Bromley (1989) found a negative relationship between density and growth in some gadoid (Atlantic cod, whiting, and haddock) juveniles in the North Sea.
The conclusions of this study cannot be categorically accepted for all species in both commercial and research situations; however, there is no reason to doubt that the conclusions would hold for the majority of gadoid species along the Atlantic coast.

National Trust ranger Ed Tooth said: "A lack of predators and a plentiful supply of sand eels and gadoids (cod) - which make up a majority of the seals' diet - has contributed to the success of the colony.

The author has organized the main body of his text in eight chapters devoted to repeated incidents of abrupt and persistent recruitment failures in gadoids in relation to increasing eutrophication, causes of variation in abundance, growth, and mortality in 0-group gadoids after settlement and a hypothesis underlying recruitment variability in Atlantic cod, growth and mortality of settled Atlantic cod in relation to diet, and other subjects.
