Adak Seafood opened originally as Adak Fisheries in Anchorage in 1986. The 2005 updated facility, which most recently operated under a major seafood producer, is located on the island of Adak, the southernmost city in Alaska near the western end of the Aleutian Islands. They processed primarily cod, as well as halibut, sablefish, crab and pollock.
The location of this plant makes it very accessible to the many fishermen who operate in this abundant environment. The area is one of the largest contributors to the world’s supply of Bering Sea crab and Pollock. It has been made famous by the Discovery Channel reality show Deadliest Catch which depicts the events aboard fishing vessels in the Bering Sea during crab fishing season. Timely delivery of their catches to processing facilities such as this one is essential to the success of local fishermen.
