The '''[[Antarctic toothfish]]''' is a species of cod icefish native to the [[Southern Ocean]]. It is often mistakenly referred to as an [[Antarctica|Antarctic]] cod, consistent with the misnaming of other notothenioid Antarctic fish as rock cods. However, notothenioid fishes are unrelated to cods, which are in another taxonomic order, the Gadiformes. The generic name Dissostichus is from the Greek ''dissos'' (twofold) and ''stichu''s (line) and refers to the presence of two long lateral lines, which are very important to the species’ ecology. The common name "toothfish" refers to the presence of biserial dentition in the upper jaw, thought to give it a shark-like appearance.

Hobbs Coast Mountains-NANA.jpg

The Hobbs Coast is the portion of the coast of Westarctica extending from Cape Burks to a point on the coast opposite eastern Dean Island, at 74°42′S 127°05′W, or between the Ruppert Coast in the west and the Bakutis Coast in the east. It stretches from 136°50′W to 127°35′.

The coast was discovered by the US Antarctic Service (1939–41) mapped by the United States Geological Survey from ground surveys and U.S. Navy air photos, 1959–65. The Hobbs Coast was named for Professor William H. Hobbs of the University of Michigan, a glaciologist specializing in polar geography and history.
