Not anymore.  Eating cads caught in territorial waters is dangerous
because of elevated mercury and dioxin levels (must be all the 
button batteries and cell phone instruction pamphlets that get 
trashed unread).

Certain areas around Newfoundland still support a sizable cad
population, but commercial operations are making the catch smaller 
every year, and there has been some discussion on a ban until 
stocks have improved - I've lost touch with the whole issue since
moving to the upper Midwest and having to deal with frozen cad.
