ABOUT Atlantic Pollock


Atlantic pollock are harvested from the cold, clean and pristine waters along the coast of the province and shipped all over the world. Atlantic pollock are related to cod and haddock and can be identified by a small barbell that extends from the chin of the fish to its whiskers. A deep-sea fish, pollock have a brownish-green back that fades to yellow-grey and then silver-grey on its belly and an elongated body with three dorsal fins. Considered a strongly flavoured whitefish, it is commonly used to make fish and chips and imitation crab.
