Raw cod can be found underwater anywhere from the surface down to elevation 32. These mobs will spawn in cold, frozen, lukewarm, and normal oceans in Minecraft, so they aren't too hard to find.

These fish usually spawn in groups of 4-7 and are a tanish color. Players can get raw cod by fishing for it, or taking a different approach and going in the ocean with a sword and killing one.

Salmon spawns around the same locations as cod does. Salmon spawns in groups of 3-5 and is usually found anywhere from y= 5-32. These fish spawn in normal, cold, warm, and frozen oceans just like the cod.

These fish are red and sort of green in color, and are a little longer in shape than cod appears to be. Salmon are pretty easy to find in Minecraft as well as cod, since they can be found in almost any ocean biome.

Salmon can also be found inside village chests sometimes.
