You are a female cod. For which male would you release your eggs?
- The Maine West Atlantic Cod
- The Norwegian North East Atlantic Cod
Scientists are to investigate whether fish in British waters have regional dialects. Professor Steve Simpson is associate professor in marine biology and global change at the University of Exeter, leading the research.
If I were a female cod, I wd release my eggs for the Maine cod, but not 4 the more hesitant and less rhythmic/sonorous Nordic cod. #r4today— Claire Khaw (@ntfem) October 5, 2016
@grvlx001 It would appear that Nordic cod, like Nordic men, may have been affected by rampant Scandinavian female promiscuity. #r4today— Claire Khaw (@ntfem) October 5, 2016
