INA - the Lingcod
- Unit Price
Beware of fangs! Known for their big heads and wide mouths with 18 large, sharp teeth, lingcod rely on the element of surprise to catch their prey. Their long bodies have grey, brown, and greenish blotched coloring that helps them blend in with their environment. They are often found hiding around rocks, in holes, and under overhangs on the rocky seafloor among the seaweed, kelp, and eelgrass. They prey on bottom-dwelling fish, squid, crab, octopus, and even smaller lingcod. Ina, meaning “mother” in Tagalog, gets her name from her ability to have lots and lots of babies. Females usually produce between 60,000 and 500,000 eggs! The older and larger a lady lingcod gets, the more eggs she can lay, with the oldest females living up to 20 years! Environmental Scientist Chenchen Shen with the California Department of Fish and Wildlife states, “Lingcod is a prized catch among California anglers, and protecting the oldest females now can help ensure more to catch later!”
