One of the key species in the food chain of the Baltic Sea is the cod. But it has become rare. Once rich stocks have declined and nowadays few people realise that this impressive predator can grow up to two metres in length and weigh over 40 kilograms – if it doesn’t end up in a fishing net. Cods likes to hide in the sunken wrecks at the sea floor of the Baltic Sea or swim in shoals over rocky reefs and mussel beds – always on the hunt for mussels and crabs, sprat and herring.
