McDonalds Fish Ship – “Alaska Ocean”
If you have ever eaten a McDonald’s Filet-o-fish there is a good chance that it came from the Alaska Ocean. The Alaska Ocean is the largest catcher/processor ship in the U.S. fleet with a capacity to catch and process 300 tons of Alaskan Pollock each day. The Alaska Ocean yearly catch accounts for nearly 40% of commercial caught fish in the U.S.
Alaska Ocean Seafood was established in 1988 for the purpose of processing and marketing seafood products. In 1990, the company commissioned the catcher/processor Alaska Ocean, designed and built specifically to catch and process Alaska pollock and Pacific whiting. At 376 feet, the Alaska Ocean is the largest catcher/processor in the U.S. fleet. atsea.org
