Arctic cod (Boreogadus saida) is a highly abundant, trophically important pelagic fish species inhabiting Arctic and sub-Arctic marine ecosystems. In the North American Arctic, surveys have indicated large abundances of Arctic cod in the Beaufort Sea, Chukchi Sea, and Canadian Arctic archipelago, although under cooler environmental conditions they can also be found further south in the Bering Strait and northern Bering Sea (Hop and Gjøsæter, 2013; Helser et al., 2017). This species is most frequently found at depths less than 300 m but has been found as deep as 930 m (Crawford et al. 2012).
