The Association of Genuine Alaska Pollock Producers (GAPP) has completed its comprehensive life cycle assessment (LCA) of the Alaska pollock industry, which it says shows Alaska pollock is one of the most climate-friendly proteins in the world.

The study showed Alaska pollock is significantly lower than beef, chicken and pork when it comes to carbon dioxide (CO2) output per kilogram of protein produced. Compared to plant-based meat, pollock produced around 82 percent less CO2 per kilogram, according to the study.
