Pollock industry weathers low quotas

The harvest season for Alaska Pollock opens this Sunday, 20 January.

The 2013 Alaska Pollock total allowable catch for the Bering Sea/Aleutian Islands and Gulf of Alaska is 1.38 million metric tons (MT), 3.8 percent more than last year’s TAC of 1.33 MT. Alaska Pollock accounts for about 30 percent of all U.S. seafood landings.

The fishery uses mid-water trawls designed to minimize the effects on the marine environment, and the fishery is vigilant against overfishing and works to avoid bycatch.
