Significance To Humans

The Alaska pollock has become an increasingly important human food resource. In the early 1990s, landings of this species were the largest of any demersal fish. The FAO Yearbook of Fishery Statistics for 1987 reported 7,389,750 tn (6,703,868 t) were landed, primarily in the western part of the North Pacific by USSR, Japan, Poland, and Republic of Korea. The largest catches are made over the outer shelf and slope of the eastern Bering Sea, between the Aleutian Islands and the Pribilofs. ♦
