F/V Diligence, Silver Bay Seafoods, Alaska Tender – Diligence is always one of the very first Pacific Northwest, Seattle Tenders to load up, gear up and get fishermen’s nets on deck to leave town in March of each year. On a particularly rainy NW afternoon the Diligence has been busy with the hydro’s going using their crane to load truck loads of nets as fishermen over at Fishermen’s Terminal in the WA Ship Canal do a touch and go getting their nets on board for the uphill jog.

Silver Bay Seafoods is not really the new kid in town anymore, they sure have taken their share of fishermen from other fisheries, and well they seem happy over at Silver Bay Seafoods. The claim to fame of Silver Bay Seafoods is by being an integrated processor of frozen, salmon, herring and squid products for domestic and export markets. They launched in 2007 as a single salmon processing facility in Sitka, Alaska. Fast forward to current day, Silver Bay Seafoods is one of the largest seafoods companies in Alaska, operating six domestic processing facilities throughout Alaska and the West Coast and greater Pacific Northwest region, with boats salt and peppered all over Seattle and WA Ship Canal in their fishing off season.

Silver Bay Seafoods ownership by fishermen represents over 80% of the committed fishing effort. Silver Bay is molded to fit that vision. While Alaskan salmon and herring production has been the Company’s primary focus, Silver Bay will continue to explore areas where it will be able to offer more value-added products to its swiftly growing customer base. They had a unique business model and ran with it – and guess what it’s working – fishermen are happy, of the most part!
