The journey of Wild Alaska Pollock begins in the pristine waters of Alaska. One of the most abundant food fish in the world, Alaska pollock lives throughout the North Pacific Ocean and Alaska's Bering Sea, and well as in the Gulf of Alaska. It is harvested in its natural habitat and either processed at-sea onboard a catcher/processor or mothership, or in a shore-based processing plant, then distributed worldwide. The Alaska pollock fishery is the largest fishery in the United States and one of the largest in the world. It is also the largest certified sustainable fishery in the world. Through careful management, landings of U.S. Alaska pollock have averaged 1.22 million metric tons (2.7 billion pounds) per year over the past 20 years.
