Gadiformes (subclass Actinopterygii, superorder Paracanthopterygii) An order of cod-like and predominantly marine fish that have elongate, tapering bodies and usually long dorsal and anal fins. All fins are supported by soft rays only. There are two or three dorsal fins, and some species have two anal fins. The pelvic fins, if present, are anterior to the pectoral fins. The order comprises about 10 families, e.g. the Gadidae (cod), Merluccidae (hake), and Macruridae (whiptail).
