The pollock fishery in Alaska is one of the world’s largest and most important. The fish prefers to reside near the seafloor and feeds on krill, fish, and crustaceans. It can be found at depths of up to 1200 meters and develops to a length of about 60 cm. Alaska pollock flesh is slightly coarse, lean, and regarded a substitute for cod, however Alaska pollock fillets are often smaller.
