If it is Cod , it will be Pacific Cod , processed in China,

Atlantic Cod is just too expensive to used in fish & Chips,

here. but looks good ,nice batter and decent chips. 

regards Worgeordie

Very reasonably priced as well , 60 Baht for the Fish & Chips and he also sells pickled onions for 15 Baht each

In the off-chance that the OP wasn't simply angling for a laugh-in.

 

Cod that goes from sea to table without freezing has a very defined flaky texture. When frozen, ice crystals develop in the flesh, when thawed that makes the fish mushy. In the picture posted the flesh is definitely mushy. Which doesn't answer the question. A price of 60Baht does.

The owner does have the reputation of being a bit of a scamp as well , he used to make shark fin soup using shark fat .

Haddock, Pollack, and Hake are similar in texture and have been used as substitutes for cod, and Pollack is much cheaper.

 

If you find out the answer, please minnow 😁

I am pretty sure that ALL the cod served in most restaurants or chippies has been frozen but is very rarely 'mushy'.
