Sustainable Alaska pollock is a great eco-conscious seafood choice and available frozen all year round. Alaska’s long-term dedication to sustainability began over 50 years ago in the State constitution and has ensured continuous, wild and healthy harvests, and guaranteed that stocks of superior seafood are preserved for future generations.
Alaska’s most abundant seafood species, genuine Alaska pollock is a lean, mild and tender member of the cod family. Swimming freely in the icy waters of the North Pacific Ocean, they feed on natural marine life. Wild Alaska pollock is low in fat and a natural source of protein, vitamins, calcium and Omega-3 oils, and can be eaten as part of a balanced diet.
Alaska pollock is easy to prepare and the most versatile of all whitefish varieties, and great value for money too! You can also find ready-prepared wild Alaska pollock fish fingers in the ranges of your favourite fish finger brands.
