Pacific Seafood Reopens Closed Plant to Process Shrimp

Jobs at the modern seafood processing plant in the Port of Brookings Harbor were among the casualties of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The $9.6 million plant built by BC Fisheries LLC in 2016 closed earlier this year, leaving 30-some people without jobs and 15 local shrimp trawlers without convenient access to a buyer. 

But recently the Clackamas-based Pacific Seafood  — which is one of the largest seafood companies in North America — took over the lease and reopened the plant to begin processing shrimp — at least for the remainder of the season.
