Bib (Trisoptrerus Iuscus)

The Bib is a member of the cod family that is often encounted in Cornish waters, particularly in and around wrecks. It can be recognised by its single barb, tall body and usually has vertical banding.

Large shoals are often seen on the Coroni River River and Petersen in Falmouth Bay and the St Chamond (Train Wreck) off St. Ives. Smaller specimens are often found over sand bordering rocky shores from 3m down.

Feeds mainly on small shrimp, squid and fish.

Maximum length about 41cm (16~ inches)
