Global Wild Pollock Market Insights

Since the past half-decade, consumers have been inclining towards protein rich fishes such as wild pollock, salmon, tuna and cod, of which wild pollock are highly preferred, owing to its good source of protein, selenium, vitamin B12, and phosphorous. Apart from the nutritional abundance, its low risk of environmental toxins and price play a major part in consumer inclination towards wild pollock.

Fish population and price factor also play a major role in capturing the majority of the wild pollock market. Moreover, Alaska Pollock is one of the key fishes extensively sold in the US market.

Atlantic Pollock is relatively expensive than its counterpart due to seasonal availability of the fish. This fish is mostly served as an expensive delicacy and used in pharmaceutical & nutraceuticals rather than household purposes. Due to the limited availability, Atlantic Pollock accounts for less than 10% share of the global wild pollock market.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The coronavirus pandemic has brought the whole world to a standstill. Business activities have registered a downturn in the form of spiraling down sales due to reduced harvest and demand. The wild pollock market is no different. The foodservice industry is one of the prominent end users of wild pollock. However, the ongoing pandemic has led to a decline in foot traffic in various foodservice sectors, thereby directly affecting the demand for wild pollock.

Extended lockdowns in different countries have a put a halt to the production and sales of wild pollock-based products for the past month, as key manufacturing units and factories are shut. Following the uplift of the lockdown, it will still take at least a couple of months to restore production to normal. Thus, contracting demand from allied industries in the second quarter of 2020 will have prolonged effects on the global wild pollock market.
