Note on a Hermaphrodite Cod (Gadus morrhua)

Published online by Cambridge University Press:  04 November 2009

A. E. Hefford
Assistant Naturalist at the Plymouth Laboratory.


On February 27th, the roe of a cod having a testicular portion attached was received at the Laboratory from Messrs. Moodys and Kelly, of Grimsby. It had been taken from a cod caught by a steam trawler fishing in Icelandic waters. Owing to the rough removal of the organs from the fish on the trawling ground, the genital ducts were missing and the region of their origin was ruptured, while the testis had been somewhat damaged in the course of its long journey to Plymouth.
