The fish originally known by the name 'whiting' in English is Merlangius merlangus, in the family Gadidae. This species inhabits the east Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea. In the USA it is commonly known as the English whiting.

In the USA, the name whiting on its own is often used for various species of hake in genus Merluccius. In Canada, it is used for the Alaska pollock, Theragra chalcogramma. In the Southern Ocean, Southern blue whiting. In India, Australia and throughout the Indo-Pacific, the name whiting (with an adjective before it) is used for various species of fish. Well known members of this family include King George whiting, Japanese whiting, northern whiting, sand whiting and school whiting.

When we have gazed at the beauty of some fish species, it is hardly imaginable, that there are so many more designs of the same basic pattern are existing, which are all different, but in the one case always closely correct.

The reason for this brilliancy is maybe a great composer, who creates from one motive many variations, each with its own beauty.
