Pollock, Kodiak’s Fortune Fish
You might think salmon and halibut are what keeps Alaska’s fish processing industry humming. But in Kodiak, it’s pollock that helps to provide year-round employment.
On this Sunday’s July 9 episode of Frontiers, Alaska Fish Radio’s Laine Welch gives us a tour of the Alaska Pacific Seafoods plant in Kodiak. Matt Moir, the plant manager, shows us how fish processing has become increasingly high tech — how once a fish is offloaded from the boat, it’s tracked through every step of processing, all the way to markets overseas.
