Fire in Trident’s False Pass facility

Trident Seafoods announced today that its False Pass processing facility in Alaska’s Aleutian Islands suffered damages from a reportedly “minor fire.”

A press release from Stefanie Moreland, the company’s vice president of Government Affairs, stated that the fire started around 3 p.m. local time on Saturday, April 13 and “was contained mainly to a computer server area, stockroom, and parts storage area on the second floor. There were no reported injuries.”

News of the fire may bring back memories of Peter Pan’s Port Moller facility’s being lost to a catastrophic fire in August 2017.

That fire brought the summer salmon season to an early end for the local fleet.

Trident reports that the damage in False Pass was limited and the company does not “anticipate any impact to processing capabilities for the upcoming season.”

The cause of the fire is under investigation and unknown at this time.
