Range map[edit]

would be nice. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 67.170.212.250 (talk) 20:33, 5 December 2007 (UTC)

Sourcing attribution[edit]

Almost the entire article has been lifted verbatim from a Canadian Government web site: http://www.pac.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/sci/sa-mfpd/lingcod/ling_lifehistory.htm and http://www.pac.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/sci/sa-mfpd/lingcod/ling_aging.htm. According to that site, use for non-commercial applications is allowed, but should follow these guidelines:

  • Users exercise due diligence in ensuring the accuracy of the materials reproduced;
  • Fisheries and Oceans Canada be identified as the source department; and,
  • The reproduction is not represented as an official version of the materials reproduced, nor as having been made, in affiliation with or with the endorsement of Fisheries and Oceans Canada.

I'll add this to the article. --Mmm (talk) 06:09, 3 February 2008 (UTC)

Two Broken Images in Gallery[edit]

There are twobroken images in the gallery. I am not sure how to fix them.

It seems that those images have been deleted. I could not find any trace of them on Wikimedia.--Mr Fink (talk) 21:39, 24 March 2013 (UTC)

NPR source is dodgy[edit]

I added the comment that the blue colour might from biliverdin, and cited an NPR article:

Bland, Alastair. "Red Fish, Blue Fish: Where The Fish Flesh Rainbow Comes From". the salt. NPR. Retrieved 18 October 2014. 

HOWEVER: that article claims that their source for the biliverdin claim is Love's book:

Love, Milton S. (2011). Certainly more than you want to know about the fishes of the Pacific Coast : a postmodern experience (PDF). Santa Barbara, Calif.: Really Big Press. ISBN 978-0962872563. Retrieved 18 October 2014. 

This book says nothing about biliverdin as far as I can tell. A quick look at Google Scholar netted this article but it doesn't seem to say that biliverdin is the cause of the lingcod's colour, based on Google Translate. --Slashme (talk) 08:26, 18 October 2014 (UTC)
