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.

Skål is our interpretation of what a Viking mead hall would be like today with a selection of local and Nordic craft beer, mead, and aquavit cocktails. Our full kitchen is inspired by the idea of a Viking butcher shop. Help us carry on the Norwegian tradition in Ballard by coming for a visit. Skål!
Join us at Ballard’s only Nordic bar and restaurant to celebrate Syttende Mai! We’ll be open from 12-11 p.m. pouring aquavit snaps and slinging pølse (among other Viking-inspired delights). Inside the beer hall is 21+ all day. Our outdoor street cafe is family friendly, including a walk-up food stand to enjoy at the parade. Expect live Nordic music all day and plenty of mirth and cheer! Seating is on a first come, first served basis. For more information about the festivities, visit our website.
