Kenny Longaker’s Story

The Bering Sea is one of the best places to catch wild Alaskan Pollock. McDonald’s is the other. From the dock at Dutch Harbor, Kenny Longaker sets out on his boat, the Defender, to catch the wild Alaskan Pollock used in our Filet-O-Fish® sandwich.

Alaskan Pollock is a fast-growing species. This natural tendency along with careful management of the Bering Sea Pollock population, ensures that there will be Pollock to enjoy for many years to come.

“The Pollock we catch are filleted and frozen within about 24 to 72 hours after being caught, and it’s the quality McDonald’s expects.” – Kenny Longaker

Not only do we appreciate Kenny’s preparation methods, but also his standards for sustainability. This product comes from a fishery that has been independently certified to the Marine Stewardship Council’s standard for a well-managed and sustainable fishery.
