    • n cod The common English name of the Gadus morrhua, an anacanthine fish of the family Gadidæ, and its best-known representative. It is a valuable food-fish, and is widely distributed throughout the northern and temperate seas of both hemispheres, but does not enter the Mediterranean, though found as far south as Gibraltar. The principal cod-fisheries are on the banks of Newfoundland and the coasts of New England, but very valuable ones also exist on the coasts of Norway. It is a very voracious fish, living in water from 25 to 50 fathoms deep, where it always feeds close to the bottom, and will take almost any kind of bait which may be offered. The cod reaches maturity at the end of the third year, when it usually measures about 3 feet in length and weighs from 12 to 20 pounds; individuals, however, have been taken weighing from 50 to more than 100 pounds. The cod is of great commercial importance both as a food-fish and as the source of cod-liver oil, which possesses nutritive and therapeutic qualities of much value. Some variations in the size or quality of cod are indicated by terms expressive of the location in which they are taken, as deep-water or shoal-water cod, shore or inshore cod, etc. The name is also extended, as a popular family term equivalent to Gadidæ, to all the species, and in different English-speaking countries is misapplied to various species of scorpænids, chirids, serranids, sparids, percophidids, and ophidiids.

In science:

In fact, since cod ◦ π = U , Result (i) on page 190 of guarantees that, for any Lawvere category U : E → B the functor I : B→ → E exists and is left adjoint to π : E → B→ .
Generic Fibrational Induction
Notice that R can be thought of as a set R of pairs of arrows in C with common domain c and common codomain such that for any (f , g ) ∈ R and any h : cod(f ) = cod(g ) → cod(h) in C , (h ◦ f , h ◦ g ) ∈ R.
Topological Galois Theory
Notice that aJat (R) corresponds under the equivalence Sh(C op , Jat) ≃ Cont(AutC (u)) to the (AutC (u)-equivariant) subset of H omInd-C (c, u) × H omInd-C (c, u) consisting of the collection Rt of pairs of the form (χ ◦ f , χ ◦ g ) where χ ∈ H omInd-C (cod(f ), u) and (f , g ) ∈ R.
Topological Galois Theory
Notice that, by definition of Rt , (ξ , z ◦ ξ ) ∈ Rt if and only if there exists (f , g ) ∈ R and χ : cod(f ) → u such that ξ = χ ◦ f and z ◦ ξ = χ ◦ g .
Topological Galois Theory
Under the hypotheses of Theorem 3.5, for any subset U of AutC (u), U is an open subgroup of AutC (u) if and only if there exists and object c of C and an equivalence relation R on C (c, −) in [C , Set] such that U = {z ∈ AutC (u) | z ◦ χ ◦ f = χ ◦ g for some (f , g ) ∈ R and χ : cod(f ) → u}.
