Rival Seafood Companies Settle Corporate Espionage Lawsuit

BOSTON – A federal judge has dismissed a corporate espionage lawsuit filed by National Fish & Seafood against a former employee and her new company after the sides announced an agreement.

Gloucester-based National Fish claimed the former employee, with the urging and assistance of her new employers at Dover, Florida-based Tampa Bay Fisheries, used company-issued equipment last summer to help steal confidential recipes, processing and customer information to benefit her new employer.

The worker had worked at National Fish for 23 years, rising to head of research and development and quality control.
