Watch video on YouTube

Pacific cod: They fill commercial fishing nets in the Bering Sea and baskets of fish and chips at restaurants nationwide. But despite being a well-managed fishery and a crucial part of the economy, little is known about their early life stages. Researchers at Oregon State are learning more about how Pacific cod grow as young fish to get better information about the size and age structure of the population and help sustain the fishery into the future.
