Trident Seafoods to Acquire 300-Foot Starbound to Add to Pollock Fleet

Trident Seafoods, a powerful force in the North Pacific fishing industry, is getting bigger.

Starbound, which underwent a $46 million renovation and expansion in 2015, is currently owned by Seattle-based Aleutian Spray Fisheries and the Aleutian Pribilof Island Community Development Association, which has rights to a portion of the North Pacific pollock harvest.
