Note 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy In the past decade, a number of molecular works have shown that T. chalcogramma coud be deeply nested in a clade that contains the Gadus spp.
It has been suggested that the species should be now assigned to Gadus, although none of these works had a conclusive indication with a complete taxonomic re-assessment.
However, the name Gadus chalcogrammus may be used in scientific publications. If the American Fisheries Society has endorsed that change in the latest edition of its list of fish names, FAO will not change it until a more stable consensus is reached. Since this species is highly commercial, with a number of regulations and statistical reports using that name, it is preferable to change it with the strongest scientific support.
In addition, they are other taxonomic issue in that family, with the same issues about names. Therefore, for the use by the rest of the society, the fishery domain in particular, we recommend to continue using T. chalcogramma and wait that a complete revision of the family and thorough taxonomic and nomenclatural decisions are published. [details]
