    • n pollack A fish of the genus Pollachius. The true pollack, of European waters only, is P. pollachius or P. typus, also called green-cod, greenfish, green-ling, laithe, laits, leeat, leet, leets, lythe, lob, sheet, and whiting-pollack. The green pollack of Atlantic waters, both European and American, is a closely related species, P. virens or P. carbonarius, called coalfish (and by many other names) in England. Both these fishes are greenish-brown above, with the sides and the belly silvery, the lateral line pale, and the fins mostly pale; but the true pollack has a much more projecting under jaw, the snout twice as long as the eye, the vent more in advance (being below the anterior half of the first dorsal fin), and the first anal fin much longer. The pollack of Pacific waters, P. chalcogrammus, is more decidedly different. Like the cod, hake, and haddock, the pollacks are among the important food-fishes of the family Gadidæ.
