Worth knowing about the Alaska Pollock
The Alaska Pollock (Theragra chalcogramma) belongs to the class of the ray-finned fishes (Actinopterygii), of the order of the cod (Gadiformes), the families cods and haddocks (Gadidae), and the genus Theragra. In French, it is called “Lieu de l’Alaska” and in Spanish “Colin de Alaska”. In the past, this fish was often confused with the salmon.
In 1814 this fish was named “Gadus chalcogrammus” by the Prussian zoologist, and botanist, Peter Simon Pallas.
