Wild-caught in the glacier-fed waters of Alaska, wild Alaska pollock is one of most abundant and sustainable species in the world.

Wild Alaska Pollock Week

  (UNITED STATES, 2/28/2020)

The Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute (ASMI), in concert with Genuine Alaska Pollock Producers (GAPP) and the Alaska seafood industry, has announced the first-ever Wild Alaska Pollock Week to be held in Seattle, Washington. From February 28 through March 8, some of the city’s best restaurants will offer unique dishes featuring one of Alaska’s unsung, delicious, sustainable seafood heroes – just in time for the Lenten season. To participate, simply visit one of the restaurants throughout the Puget Sound, order one of the exclusive wild Alaska pollock creations and share photos via social using #WildAlaskaPollockWeek

Wild Alaska Pollock is a nutrient-dense whitefish.

Wild-caught in the glacier-fed waters of Alaska, wild Alaska pollock is one of most abundant and sustainable species in the world – often praised for its versatility, nutrition and outstanding mild taste and flaky texture. As the largest certified sustainable fishery in the world, wild Alaska pollock accounts for 30% (by volume) of all fish caught in the U.S. – with much of that making its way onto the plates of Washington state residents. Wild Alaska Pollock Week provides Seattle seafood aficionados and foodies alike with the opportunity to enjoy this tasty, nutritious fish while celebrating the fisherman and the industry that help bring it from sea to table.
