Success with seafood starts with sourcing the right product. Whether you are buying Alaska pollock as part of the USDA Food Program, or as a direct purchase, there are a number of key specifications you should always consider. These key elements ensure that your schools receive good quality fish that students will enjoy:

Once-Frozen
Frozen seafood products are available once-frozen or twice-frozen, indicating the number of times the fish has been thawed and frozen before reaching your schools, and its overall quality. Like any food product, quality deteriorates the more times it is frozen. Once-frozen Alaska pollock has a fresh, clean flavor that is not “fishy.” It also has excellent color and texture, making it a seafood product that students will enjoy again and again.

Buy American
Seafood is a global business and buying U.S. produced Alaska pollock makes a big difference in your program’s success. It is not always easy, but smart buyers know how to tell which products are truly from a U.S. source. Learn more.

Sustainability
The health of the oceans is of concern to parents and students. The U.S. Alaska Pollock fishery is the largest sustainable fishery in the world. The stocks are abundant and are well managed to ensure the fish will be around for generations to come. Learn more.
