Burbot (Fish Facts) Ministry of Fisheries
1999

Abstract: This fish looks like a ling cod, with a long body tapering to the rounded tail. The head is flattened with a long snout and a large mouth. It has a whiskerlike appendage, called a barbel, on its chin and at each nostril, and two fins on its back. The base of the fin behind the head is quite short; the other is at least six times longer. Burbot can vary in colour from very pale to very dark, but are usually olivecoloured with mottled, darkish markings on the back and sides and a yellowish or duskycoloured belly. Large fins are mottled and have a dark border. It is protected by a heavy covering of mucus which gives it a smooth and slippery feel when handled.
