What is Wild Alaska Pollock?

Wild Alaska Pollock is a cousin to cod and shares its lean, snow-white meat, delicate, flaky textures and mild flavor. Not to be confused with the darker, oilier Atlantic pollock, Alaska pollock is one of the healthiest and most versatile fish choices available. Wild-caught in the icy waters of Alaska, Alaska pollock is the most abundant certified-sustainable wild fish in the world.

According to a recent Life Cycle assessment study*: Wild Alaska Pollock has a significantly lower carbon impact compared to beef, chicken, and pork.

1 Monterey Bay Aquarium/Dalhousie University Seafood Carbon Emissions Tool; beef, chicken and pork measured as kg CO2-eq per kg of protein, midpoints for reported range (as of July 14, 2021)
2 Comparative environmental LCA of the Impossible Burger® with conventional ground beef burger, Quantis International (2019)
3 Quantis International, Life Cycle Assessment of Wild Alaska Pollock: ISO LCA Report (2021)
* Non-profit association Genuine Alaska Pollock Producers (GAPP) partnered with a leader in global sustainability research to conduct a Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) for the Wild Alaska Pollock industry. The LCA is an internationally recognized approach that evaluates potential environmental impacts of products throughout their lifecycle.
The LCA results show that Wild Alaska Pollock fillet is 3.77 kg CO2-eq per kg of protein, significantly lower than comparative statistics reported for other protein sources.
