“Blue North and Prowler are broadly recognized as industry leaders in the harvesting and production of Frozen at Sea Alaska Line Caught Cod,” stated by Larry Cotter, Prowler Fisheries LLC’s managing partner and APICDA CEO. “Our agreement will enhance both companies’ strength and market agility. We believe the benefits will be far-reaching: vessel crews will see a continued focus on quality and efficiency, an increased presence in Dutch Harbor Alaska and great support from the Seattle Blue North team. Further, the agreement allows efficiencies to be shared by Blue North and Prowler in everything from insurance, fuel, gear, maintenance and groceries, compliance and documentation.”

According to the 2016 agreement, Blue North Fisheries planned to manage Prowler Fisheries’ five hook-and-line catcher processors operating in the Bering Sea, Aleutian Islands and Gulf of Alaska. These vessels include the F/V Arctic Prowler, F/V Prowler, F/V Ocean Prowler, F/V Bering Prowler and F/V Gulf Prowler. Blue North Trading, a fully-owned subsidiary of Blue North will market and sell all of the frozen-at-sea products produced by the Prowler vessels, this was back in B Season of 2016. We can already see F/V Prowler is now F/V Titan Explorer.

Prowler Fisheries stated they’d close the Seattle office of Alaska Longline Company, the operation that currently manages its Prowler vessels. Many of the current Alaska Longline Company employees were retained by Blue North, so far so good, growing pains can be bright and sometimes painful, such as change. Looks like up next if F/V Arctic Prowler, for her summer shave and haircut, stay tuned, time and paint color will tell.

“This relationship represents a big step in operational innovation in our industry. As seafood continues to grow in popularity, so too does our responsibility to identify, and implement, process improvements when and where we can,” said Kenny Down, President and CEO of Blue North. “This agreement allows for the autonomy of each group while combining management under one roof in a strong structure – stronger than could ever be accomplished separately. These gained efficiencies benefit ship’s crew, office staff and principals alike.” Congratulations to both companies, the new paint and colors for vessel changes that are underway and happening before our eyes at Fishermen’s Terminal in the Pacific Northwest.
