I have heard the species poor cod numerous times, but i have no idea what it is? First thought that comes to mind is a cod in poor condition, but i dont think its right? Can anyone tell me what one is....

Yup also the vent is directly below the rear of the dorsal fin (clearly seen on Dave's pic) where as on a Pout it's almost in line with the front of the Dorsal. Colouration tends to be as is on the one pictured above but very occasionally they can have the barring shown on the pic that Ada has linked to. Also the eye on the Poor Cod is larger in relation to body size
