Navaga (Latin: Eleginus) is a fish of the northern seas belonging to the cod family.
The fish is appreciated for its tender meat and the content of a large amount of iodine,
for a long time it was one of the most popular in Russian cuisine.
The Northern navaga is found in the White, Kara and Barents Seas, the Far Eastern one lives in the Bering Sea,
Chukchi, Japanese and Okhotsk.
The taste of navaga is very delicate, it resembles an ice fish, it does not have a strong fishy smell. The northern one is considered more delicious — its meat is more tender than that of the Far Eastern one. It is easy to distinguish the northern one — it is smaller. The flesh of the navaga is very tender, and the bones are easily separated along with the spine.
