What Is Wild Alaska Pollock?

Although it’s one of the most consumed seafood species in the U.S., Wild Alaska pollock has long lived in the shadow of its more recognizable cousin—the cod. Also known as Walleye Pollock, Pacific Pollock, or Pacific Tomcod, the Alaska Pollock is not to be confused with the Atlantic Pollock, a darker, oilier fish that is actually a different species.

Caught in the icy, cold waters off Alaska, Wild Alaska Pollock has a mild flavor and flaky texture that can be grilled, pan-fried, or deep-fried to your liking. It’s often used as a substitute for cod, but Wild Alaska Pollock is smaller and more delicate, and to many—even tastier.
