Pollock is one of the more deep bodied members of the cod family. This species lacks the dark lateral blotch and pale gray to yellow laterally. The belly is silvery. Pollock range from olive green to brownish green dorsally and pale gray to yellow laterally. Young pollock are darker and yellower on the lower sides than are older, larger pollock. The largest pollock landed by hook and line in Massachusetts weighed 44 pounds 7 ounces and was caught at Cashes Ledge. Pollock grow about 5 inches a year for the first 3 years of life, 2 to 4 inches a year for the next 3 years and about 1 to 2 inches a year thereafter. A 5 year old pollock may weigh 4 to 5 pounds and measure up to 25 inches in length and a 9 year old 8 to 10 pounds and 30 inches in length. The maximum age reached by pollock is about 19 years.
