From what I hear, only Gordon Ramsey, but you can go screw yourself you idiot!!
Just kidding, but I know he'd have something like that to say!
I think the fish are totally different and their diet is certainly not the same, so I'd think there'd be a marked difference in flavor and most likely, texture.
I'd be up for a taste test!!

I looked and looked and could not find much in the way of photos of Pacific cod from the northern Pacific except this one.
There is the Potato Cod from Australia which looks a lot like a goliath grouper to me.

They look exactly like Atlantic cod to me. Trash fish over there.

I prefer the Atlantic Cod over Pacific. And there is a differance in taste and some intexture but not enough to worry about. If your not used to eating Atlantic Cod you wouldn't know it. But I was raised on Cod and had it usually twice a week. We'd freeze milk containers and always had plenty.

I've heard numerous times that the Pacific cod has less value as a foodfish and a different taste/texture, but I've never tried it. I did, however, just fry up a batch pf fresh Atlantic cod and have to say it really doesn't get any better....

Yeah, Last week I was told there was some cod in the fridge, so I mixed up some flour and soda water (no beer was to be had)and made the usual fish and chips. The cod looked slightly different to me, I didnt think too much of it. When eating it, It tasted a little off to me, not much, but I just didnt enjoy it as much as I usually do. So after cleaning up the kitchen, I came across the paper and discovered on the label it read " wild pacific cod" figured that could be it. Like you said it's not really all that different, but I definitely noticed that it didnt take like the usual Atlantic cod.
It had a strange aquarium taste to it, I have the same issue talapia, theres something that I just dont like about it.

I never heard of pacific cod before, couldnt really find any info on it either, but it definitely tasted off to me. It's not bad, but I really prefer Atlantic,I guess I know I have to be more specific when requesting Cod. Being on the East coast, I really dont want anything that is sent here from out west. I agree there's nothing finer than Atlantic cod so many different way to cook it.

Caught them halibut fishing. You could jig a hundred 20lbers if you wanted in a day. People don't care for them. Neither would I if I could catch shrimp fed salmon.
