Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Alaska pollock or walleye pollock is a North Pacific species of the cod family Gadidae. While related to the common Atlantic pollock species of the same family, the Alaska pollock is not a member of the same Pollachius genus. The Norwegian pollock, a rare fish of Norwegian waters, may actually be the same species as the Alaska pollock. The Alaska pollock has been said to be "the largest remaining source of palatable fish in the world." More than 3 million tons of Alaska pollock are caught each year in the North Pacific from Alaska to northern Japan. Alaska pollock catches from U.S. fisheries have been quite consistent at about 1.5 million tons a year, almost all of it from the Bering Seashow more
