FDA Updates Seafood List with Change to Legal Pollock Market Name

Publish Date 2016-01-25

SEAFOODNEWS.COM by Michael Ramsingh - January 22, 2016
The legal market name for all pollock products sold in the US market is now just "pollock" now that the FDA officially updated its Seafood List to reflect the change from "Alaska pollock."

As mandated by Congress in the Fiscal Year 2016 Omnibus Appropriations, only Gadus chalcogrammus caught in Alaskan waters or the exclusive economic zone (as defined in section 3 of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act) adjacent to Alaska can be called Alaskan “Pollock” or Alaska “Pollock.”

Previously, pollock harvested outside Alaskan waters or the exclusive economic zone were allowed to be labeled as “Alaska Pollock.” These fish can now be labeled only as “Pollock.”
