SEATTLE — Trident Seafoods, a seafood company, announced its first foray into the pet food space on April 7 with its new Omega 3 dog food topper. The new Alaska Naturals® Fish Oil Food Topper for Dogs uses Wild Alaska Pollock as a sustainable source of functional ingredients. The launch is part of Trident Seafoods’ partnership with Nordstrom Restaurants and the Association of Genuine Alaska Pollock Producers (GAPP).

According to a study by Quantis International, Wild Alaska Pollock is more sustainable than traditional proteins, producing a lower carbon footprint compared to beef, chicken and pork. The species of pollock is also responsibly sourced and managed by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) National Marine Fisheries Service, which sets yearly catch limits to ensure sustainability.

Wild Alaska Pollock is also certified sustainable by Responsible Fisheries Management and the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC).

According to Trident Seafoods, the company strives to use every part of the Wild Alaska Pollock, including the oil to create the dog supplements, reducing food waste. Alaska Naturals Fish Oil Food Topper is formulated with EPA and DHA Omega 3 fatty acids to support a dog’s skin and coat health. The topper is produced in the United States and is available at Nordstorm Restaurants and specialty coffee shops, as well as on Amazon.
