Pollock are closely related to cod, and they can grow very big! Their flesh is not as white in colour but is very similar in taste and texture to cod. They live near to the sea bed around rocky reefs and wrecks. Pollock is becoming increasingly popular.
It usually occurs at 40-100 m depth but is found down to 200m. Growth is rapid, approaching 10 cms per year. It migrates into deeper water as it grows.
The local boats can supply Pollock from June to October, while for the rest of the year, Cornish boats supply us.
