Ling is often an alternative name for cod.
Base would be bass, I suspect.
Haburdyn I'd want to check halibut first in the reference books, but that's
just a wild guess.

Bret is a bit tricky. OED suggests brill or turbot, but I don't think
so. I have translated it as small dogfish.
Creues would be prawn or shrimp.
