The Alaska Pollock fishery, the largest fishery in the United States and the largest sustainable fishery in the world, has been re-certified under the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) Fisheries Standard.

One of the top five most consumed fish per capita in the United States, other primary markets for Alaska Pollock include Europe – in Germany it is the most consumed fish – and Japan. While Europe and the United States use the pollock fillets for dishes like fish and chips, fish tacos, fish sandwiches and fish sticks, Japan is known to use the fish in surimi and kamaboko products.

A recognized symbol for environmentally sustainable wild-caught seafood, the MSC Fisheries Standard has been obtained by the Bering Sea, Aleutian Islands and Gulf of Alaska Pollock fisheries since 2005.
