About whole pollock

Pollock is a cold-water fish found in the northern oceans. There are two different species of pollock:
  • Atlantic pollock: Atlantic whole pollock is larger than the Alaskan pollock and harvested from MSc-certified fisheries in the Gulf of Mexico and Georges Bank. 
  • Alaskan pollock: Alaskan whole pollock are wild-caught in the northern Pacific Ocean. It is the most common type of pollock in the United States.
Whole pollock has a mild flavor and is often used as an alternative to cod or haddock. It has a delicate, flaky texture and is easily adaptable to many different recipes. 

Whole pollock, like other fish, is a healthy addition to any diet. In a 100 gram serving, Alaskan pollock contains:
  • 92 calories.
  • 19 grams of protein.
  • 393 mg of omega-3 fatty acids.
  • Zero carbs.
You can find whole pollock in the fresh seafood section of the store and the frozen section. When choosing your whole pollock, look for clear and plump eyes. The eyes are the best way to tell if fish is fresh. If there is any cloudiness, it indicates that the fish is no longer good. You should also look at the gills of your fresh whole pollock to make sure they are wet and have a bright color. If they look dry or brown, avoid the fish. Whole pollock should smell like the ocean when it's fresh. If it starts to stink, it is not a good sign. 

It's important to note that pollock should never be eaten raw. This fish can contain parasitic worms if you don't cook it, and if you eat it raw, the parasites can pass on to you.

FAQs About Whole Pollock

If you have fresh pollock, it will last in your refrigerator for one or two days. Make sure to keep it in the coldest part of the fridge and wrap it in parchment paper or butcher's paper. If you purchase your whole pollock frozen, it will last in your freezer for up to nine months. Make sure it stays frozen at all times. The fish is safe to eat even after nine months, but it might not taste as good if it remains in the freezer for too long.
