Story of Origin

The cold, nutrient-rich waters of the Bering Sea in the North Pacific Ocean are home to our Alaska Pollock. Feeding on shrimp, squid and small fishes, this highly abundant species supports the world's largest certified sustainable fishery! Continuous scientific monitoring and assessment of stocks status creates the basis for an effective fisheries management system which allows for sustainable harvest rules for the participating fleet of vessels. Pollock is caught by large trawler vessels which also function as at-sea factories: Fresh fish is processed into frozen headed and gutted products within hours of catch, preserving the freshness and quality of the product.

Good to Know

The Alaska Pollock belongs to the family of cod fishes. It is a schooling fish widely distributed in the North Pacific Ocean with largest concentrations found in the eastern Bering Sea, one of the most productive marine ecosystems on our planet. These very large fish stocks support the second largest and one of the best managed fisheries in the world! Surimi, a well-known alternative to crab (also known as artificial crab meat), is made from Alaska Pollock, too!
