Our flagship Crab Classic brand (along with our natural Simply Surimi brand) is made with high quality Wild Alaska Pollock, which is widely known as the world’s best whitefish for its natural goodness and plentiful supply. Wild Alaska Pollock gives our surimi products the exceptional flavor and healthy benefits that have made us America’s favorite brand of refrigerated seafood. Trans-Ocean is proud to be an enthusiastic supporter of the Genuine Alaska Pollock Producers (GAPP), an association of fishermen, processors and community groups that are working collectively to educate the public about the many benefits of Wild Alaska Pollock. As a Gold Level Associate Member of GAPP, we assist the association with sponsorships and by helping to expand the quality message about Wild Alaska Pollock to people who enjoy our products.
Caught in the icy, pristine waters of the Bering Sea, Wild Alaska Pollock is firm and flaky with a mild flavor that makes it a versatile option in many different recipes. It’s also a nutritional superfish that is low in fat, heart healthy, and a good source of protein and omega-3 fatty acids. Harvested from the most abundant, certified sustainable fishery on the planet, Wild Alaska Pollock is carefully managed to be a reliable food source for generations to come.
At Trans-Ocean, we have counted on the consistent quality of Wild Alaska Pollock as the key ingredient in our surimi products since our founding in 1985. Through our sister company, Westward Seafoods, we are connected to the fishermen who provide this valuable resource to us and to the people in Dutch Harbor, Alaska where the fish is brought after harvesting to be made into the surimi raw material used to make Crab Classic. Wild Alaska Pollock is a wholesome seafood that can help people live healthier lives, and it is also an important fish that plays a vital role in the livelihood of remote coastal communities in Alaska.
