Bib (Gadus luscus), a small food-fish, common on the rocky parts of the British coasts, and ranging as far north as Greenland. The upper surface is light yellowish brown, lighter below, and tinged in places with bluish-grey. There is a spot at the base of the pectoral fin as in the whiting (q.v.), to which the Bib is closely allied. Called also Pout, Blebs, and Blinds, and all its popular names have reference to its power of inflating a membrane which covers the head.
