Seafood Processing Facility Breaks Ground in South Boston

Boston Sword and Tuna officially started construction of a $20 million new seafood processing facility in South Boston today.

The new 50,000 square foot processing plant, celebrated by Mayor Martin J. Walsh and city Councilors Ed Flynn and Michael Flaherty, will create 150 new maritime industrial jobs on a 6.5-acre Massport waterfront property.

BST filed a letter of intent in late 2017 with city planning officials and submitted detailed plans in early 2018, saying the company had outgrown their existing space located at 8 Seafood Way “with a great need for expansion.” In May 2018, the Boston Planning and Development Agency board approved their plans.
