In 2014, the city residents received a proposal to create a symbolic monument (small architectural form) to cod. During the war years, cod saved more than one human life, becoming the basis of the diet of the military Murmansk.
The size of the main northern fish corresponds to the natural size – weight 32 kilograms, length twenty meters. It was made by Murmansk craftsmen.
The monument to the cod was erected on October 2, 2015 in the park on the square of Pyaty Uglov.
