Pollachius pollachius

Pollock, scientifically known as Pollachius pollachius, is a cold-water fish native to the North Atlantic Ocean. It thrives in waters up to 180 meters (600 feet) deep, over rocky areas and throughout the water column. This deep-sea species can reach lengths of up to 130 centimeters (4 feet 3 inches) and weigh as much as 34 kg (71 pounds).

Norway is among the world's leading exporters of Pollock, with key markets in the USA, Denmark, Japan, and Poland. It is a prominent fish in Norway, and is widely exported globally.

Pollock is known for its white, flaky meat, mild flavor, and low fat content. It is also a nutritious option, rich in protein, vitamins, and minerals. Pollock's popularity has surged recently due to the overfishing of cod and haddock. It's now commonly available in supermarkets, either as fresh fillets or in frozen prepared forms. Often used in fish fingers, imitation crab meat, and as a key ingredient in fish and chips, Pollock is a versatile seafood choice.
