Does "scrod" refer to one fish, multiple fish types, or what?

Asked by elbanditoroso (14559 points ) April 18th, 2014

Scrod is usually defined as smaller pieces of cod or haddock – it appears to be some sort of a generic term referring to a couple of different types of fish (see Wikipedia for their definition). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scrod

However, I’ve seen “Boston Scrod” on the menu at seafood restaurants.

Is there a single scrod? Or are there many scrods? I need a scrod I can believe in. Can you northeasterners guide me?

Ancient joke from Boston.

Man gets into a cab and says, “I need to get scrod,”

Taxi driver says, “Man, I’ve never heard it in the pluperfect passive infinitive before.”

Each place that has scrod believes it to be the only scrod.
