NO CRABBING ABOUT THIS LUNCH Instead, the Millionair Club Charity’s clients were all smiles to be served golden and tender crab-stuffed Pollock, Ivar’s clam chowder, and Caesar salad, all sponsored for the 14th year by the At-Sea Processors Association. Melinda Madsen Schmitt led a group from the APA, including new volunteers from Glacier Fish Company, to serve the special meal.
At-sea Processors is a local office of the international At-sea Processors Association (APA), whose member companies have donated 12 million meals since the inception of the Community Catch program in 2000. The Alaska Pollock fishery is the United State’s largest fishery. Recognized internationally as one of the world’s best managed fisheries, Alaska Pollock landings account for about 30% of all seafood landed annually in the U.S.
Alaska Pollock is a high–‐quality whitefish used extensively in quick–‐serve and casual restaurants, consumer ready meals, frozen breaded products and Surimi seafood products. APA represents six companies that operate catcher/processor vessels in the Alaska Pollock fishery.
