Best Answer

Cod was a generic name for various kinds of fish (including hake and the haddock) and can refer to different fish in different parts of the world. In those parts of the world where cod refers to fish with scales, then cod will be Kosher. All Kosher fish need fins and scales.

Is Blue Ling a kosher species of fish?

There are several species of kosher cod and several species of non-kosher cod, so the status of Blue Ling is not immediately clear. Most commercial cod species are in the Gadidae family and several are kosher, such as cod, haddock, pollock, and whiting. Non-kosher cods are also in the Gadidae family and include the Burbot and the Lawyer, also called Freshwater Ling (Lota Lota). However, Blue Ling is in the less familiar Lotidae family. There are detailed lists online of kosher and non-kosher fish, and Blue Ling is not listed.

Is cod halal?

In Sunni (except the Hanafi school) and Ibadi Jurisprudence, all sea-life is halal, so cod-fish is permissible to consume. In Shiite Jurisprudence and the Sunni Hanafi school, all fishes that are kosher according to Jewish strcitures are halal. Since cod has fins and scales as Judaism defines them, cod is kosher and this makes it halal in Shiite Islam.

Can Jews eat cod and chips and peas?

The problem with the word "cod" is that it refers to more than one kind of fish, some of which are kosher types and some that aren't. Those "cods" that have fins and scales (when alive) are the kosher kinds. Those kinds that didn't have fins or scales aren't kosher kinds (Deuteronomy ch.14). To be kosher, the fish would have to be a kosher type of fish; and the ingredients (fish, chips, peas) would have to be cooked in kosher pots and pans.
