Trident Seafoods

Trident is a vertically-integrated harvesting, processing, and marketing company active in all major production regions of Alaska. We also process and market seafood sourced from other parts of the Pacific and around the world. Trident has a special blend of talent and steel. The career professionals who comprise the Trident team direct a fleet of harvesting, processing and tendering vessels, a network of strategically placed shore plants, value-added processing facilities, and an extensive sales and distribution network. This carefully conceived mix of mobile and fixed production assets gives us the ability to control our seafood products From the Source to the Plate®. From the fishermen, to the processors, to the plant managers, all Trident employees assume personal responsibility for Trident quality. We are constantly aware that the products we handle are not simply raw materials but a valuable food source for people around the world.
