Discover one of the most abundant certified-sustainable wild fish in the world. Wild Alaska Pollock is the fish of the future. As healthy as it is flavorful, Wild Alaska Pollock is low in saturated fat and cholesterol, high in vitamin B-12, and a natural source of Omega-3 fatty acids.
A cousin to cod and similar in flavor, texture and appearance, Wild Alaska Pollock’s lean, snowy-white meat, delicate texture, and mild flavor make it extremely versatile, delicious and a natural flavor carrier. Sustainably managed and responsibly harvested under U.S. regulations, it is traceable from deck to dish, assuring food safety, quality, and consistency of supply.
In the United States, only Pollock caught in Alaskan waters can be labeled “Wild Alaska Pollock”. Fish labeled simply as “Pollock” is typically harvested and processed in either Russia or China. Wild Alaska Pollock is generally once-frozen, with no additives. It is caught, filleted, and frozen within hours of being caught to preserve freshness, flavor, and texture. Pollock harvested in Russia and China typically is twice-frozen, which results in mushy texture and an overall loss of fresh flavor. It also generally contains additives, which are used to prevent water loss. Those factors, combined with the Wild Alaska Pollock species’ incredible sustainability story, make it everything consumers say they want in a seafood species.
