National Fisheries Institute Statement on the Passing of Chuck Bundrant

October 18, 2021 National Fisheries Institute

Chuck Bundrant was a man of contrasts:  A young man from southern Indiana who partnered with a Norwegian to build a seafood company spanning the globe; a dreamer who took a 130-foot boat and from it built an enterprise that included reshaping a mountain to build a fish processing plant that fed millions of families, and; a man of few words, but who, when he did speak through that gravelly voice, was listened to from Cordova to Capitol Hill.
