E&E Maximizing Cook Inlet Sockeye Run

E&E Maximizing Cook Inlet Soc...

Wild Sockeye Salmon are streaming into Cook Inlet and E&E Foods is maximizing the record breaking run. Based on the Upper Cook Inlet Salmon fishery as of 7/26, the ADF&G has recently revised its Sockeye forecast for Cook Inlet from 6.4 million to almost 10 million fish. E&E Foods is keeping pace with our at-sea and shoreside processing plants.

In addition to Pacific Star Seafoods, our shore-based plant in Kenai, E&E Foods has also deployed p/v Cape Greig and p/v Norton Sound to Cook Inlet. All together we have the ability to process one million lbs. of Salmon daily. To complete the sea-to-customer process, E&E Foods is using the freighter Seabird to consistently deliver finished product to distribution points in Alaska and Seattle.

With our acquisition earlier this year of the Ocean Beauty buying stations in Kenai, E&E Foods has become largest producer in Cook Inlet.

Record Breaking Salmon Harvest Underway

thread
Record Breaking Salmon Harve...
The Norton Sound, our new at-sea processing plant, heads out from Seattle’s Hiram Chittenden Locks en route to Alaska to start processing Sockeye Salmon in False Pass. The 2011 Alaska commercial salmon harvest is forecast to be one of the largest since statehood and E&E Foods is ready. Throughout our Alaska based operations, E&E Foods expects to produce 5-7 thousand tons of Sockeyes in H&G form this season. We have doubled the number of fisherman we are working with and our staff has swelled to 500 people for the summer season. This is always an exciting time of year for E&E foods and our customers, and this year is looking to be particularly strong.

The Alaska Department of Fish and Game forecasts that the commercial catch of Sockeye Salmon is expected to total 45 million fish – an 11% increase over the 2010 Sockeye harvest. The harvest of Pink Salmon will be especially large, totaling 133.7 million fish and resulting in a catch 25% higher than the 2010 total.

The ADFG forecast reports an estimated 203 million fish will be caught this year, the fifth largest haul since statehood, thanks to a combination of good environmental conditions over the past few years as well as careful management by the state. "Probably the biggest influence of all is general conditions in the ocean for providing food, and those seem to have been favorable," Geron Bruce, Deputy Director of Commercial Fisheries for the department, told Reuters.

Welcome Cook Inlet Fisherman!

thread
Welcome Cook Inlet Fisherman!
Earlier this year Pacific Star Seafoods, a wholly owned subsidiary of E&E Foods, purchased the Cook Inlet buying stations previously owned by Ocean Beauty. With the Cook Inlet Sockeye gillnet harvest beginning this weekend, everyone at E&E Foods and PacStar extends a warm welcome to the Cook Inlet fishermen delivering to Pacific Star Seafoods for the first time this season. We look forward to working with you, and forming long-term, mutually beneficial relationships.

The purchase of the additional buying stations will greatly increase E&E Foods’ gillnet Sockeye production from Cook Inlet. E&E Foods also owns shoreside processing plants in Bristol Bay, Yakutat and Seattle. And new this year, E&E Foods has created partnerships in two at-sea processing plants, p/v Norton Sound and p/v Cape Greig. These floating plants will process salmon from Bristol Bay, False Pass and Prince William Sound; p/v Norton Sound will also process Pacific Cod from the Bering Sea.

New Partnership: <i>p/v Cape Greig</i>

New Partnership: p/v Cape Gr...
E&E Foods and a group of Alaska fishermen have formed a new partnership to purchase and operate the at-sea processing vessel Cape Greig. With a dedicated and experienced fleet continuously filling the Cape Greig's 800,000 lb. capacity, E&E Foods will expand its consistent access to the highest quality fish.

To complete the sea-to-customer process, E&E Foods is also partnered in the freighter Seabird which delivers 1.2 million pounds of finished product to various distribution points. By not having to rely on tramper transport services, E&E Foods is able to get our product to our customers faster.

Specializing in processing salmon, p/v Cape Greig begins her season with wild Sockeye from the Ugashik River in Bristol Bay, Alaska home of the largest and best managed Sockeye Salmon fishery in the world. The vessel then travels to the abundant, glacier-fed waters of Prince William Sound for wild Pink Salmon. The Cape Grieg is Marine Stewardship Council certified and shares E&E Foods commitment to providing the best Alaska seafood products while maintaining a sustainable fishery.

The ship has spent the winter in Seattle getting a new production facility and will head north to Alaska in May. The new corporation, Cape Greig, LLC, is based in Seattle, Washington.
