A description of a rare representative of the family Gadidae—the Norwegian pollock Theragra finnmarchica Koefoed, 1956—is given. The Norwegian pollock caught in November 2004 in the Barents Sea off Nadezhda Island is the first individual of this species officially recorded in Russia. At the present time, reliable information is available about 42 caught individuals of this species. A review was performed of evidence on the history of study and modern concepts of the origin, biology, and…

The gadoid fishes Theragra finnmarchica from the coast of northern Norway and Theragra chalcogramma from the north-east Pacific could not be taxonomically discriminated by sequencing the mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase I (COI) gene, but all examined characters overlapped between the two taxa, except the number of pyloric caeca.
