Pouting, also called Bib and Pout Whiting, are native to the northeastern Atlantic, mainly from Scandinavia to the UK but also as far south as North Africa. They are reddish (especially males) or brownish (especially females) with a line along the flanks, a dark spot at the base of the pectoral fin, a black and white border to the tail and a barbel on the chin. They can reach 30cm long.

Part of the True Cod family, they have a similar outline to cod, haddock (silvery), pollack and poor cod. Poor Cod, T. minutus, in the same genus, is a similar size and colour but doesn't have the pectoral spot or the white on the tail border; the back of the first dorsal fin and the end of the pelvic fins overlap the start of the first anal fin on the Pouting but not on the Poor Cod.
