We catch and process Wild Alaska Pollock immediately after harvest, while still at sea, and with no antibiotics (ever). This at-sea advantage preserves more freshness, taste, and nutrition.
Fresh, flaky mild tasting
Wild Alaska Pollock boasts a tender yet firm texture. Perfect for a wide variety of popular preparations, heart healthy Wild Alaska Pollock is a lean and protein-rich whitefish that’s high in omega-3 fatty acids.
Sustainability that leads the way
Our Wild Alaska Pollock harvest comes with unmatched “green” production credentials, including one of the lowest carbon footprints and zero freshwater usage (because we make it ourselves)—far lower than meat and even plant protein production.

In the United States, Wild Alaska Pollock is sustainably managed by the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS), a division of the United States Department of Commerce. Biological catch limits are determined by impartial scientists who work for NMFS and state fishery agencies and universities. Quotas are set at or below the biological limits by the North Pacific Fishery Management Council, a body made up of knowledgeable private citizens and state and federal government officials. More information on the management of the Bering Sea Wild Alaska Pollock fishery is available on www.fishwatch.gov.
The Bering Sea Wild Alaska Pollock achieved Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) certification for sustainability in 2010 and 2016. Information on the MSC and its certification of the Wild Alaska Pollock fishery is available on www.msc.org.
The Bering Sea Wild Alaska Pollock fishery has also been certified as responsibly managed by Global Trust under a program established by Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute. More information on this program is available at http://www.alaskaseafood.org/rfm-certification/.
