You can find the pollock anywhere from North Carolina to the Gulf of the St. Lawrence Seaway. Look for underwater terrain that is rocky and as deep as 100 feet for pollock. When fishing for them, be prepared for one that is over 3 feet long and can weigh up to 45 pounds. They are extremely strong fighters that can grow up to 5 inches a year. The growth rate slows down as they get older but they grown nonetheless. The oldest known pollock was documented at 19 years old.
One of the reasons that pollock is sought after is the fact that they are a “white fish”. The lack of oil and the good nutrition that comes with it gives it a high place on the place. It is low in saturated fat and a good source of B12, protein, magnesium, and potassium. But there is one drawback for the health conscience. It is also high in cholesterol.
