The Whiting, pp.243-244.

[Three Hundred Animals Contents]

   IS seldom more than twelve inches in length, and of a slender and tapering form. The scales are small and fine. The back is silvery, and when just taken out of the sea, reflects the rays of light with great lustre and gloss. The flesh is light, wholesome, and gently nourishing: it is often allowed to sick people and convalescent stomachs, when other food is deemed hurtful. The Whiting is found in all parts about the coasts of England, and is in its proper season from August to February.
