About Trident Seafoods Corporation

Something's supposed to be fishy at Trident Seafoods. The vertically integrated seafood business hauls in salmon, crab, and assorted other fin- and shellfish from the icy waters of Alaska and the Pacific Northwest. It then processes and cans or freezes them for retail food and foodservice customers. Trident operates a fleet of some 30 processing boats and trawlers, as well as about 20 onshore processing plants in Alaska, Washington, and Oregon. The company's portfolio includes Trident, Louis Kemp, and SeaLegs brand of surimi (crab-flavored processed fish). Trident owns Port Chatham Smoked Seafood, which smokes salmon and tuna under the Portlock label. The company operates a single retail store in Seattle.


Aside from its fleet of about 30 processing boats and trawlers, Trident boasts almost 20 onshore processing plants. Trident provides harvesting, processing, and marketing seafood products, including seabass, cod, crab, flounder/sole, halibut, lobster, mahi, pollock, rockfish, salmon, shrimp, steelhead trout, swordfish, tilapia, tuna, and wahoo.

Geographic Reach

The seafood company's operations stretch across Alaska and the Pacific Northwest. Its Alaskan plants include Akutan, Chignik, Cordova, Ketchikan, Kodiak, Naknek - Bristol Bay, Petersburg, Sand Point, St. Paul and Wrangell. The company's Northwest plants include Anacortes and Bellingham (Washington), Newport, (Oregon), and Pier 91 - Seattle, Seattle Shipyard, and Tacoma Shipyard. It also has a plant in Motley, (Minnesota).

Sales and Marketing

The company serves foodservice and retail distribution markets in the US. Trident also offers its food products, and sells clothing, merchandise, and seasonal products online.


Trident has grown in recent years by opening new locations in select markets. In 2014 it opened its newest plant on the east coast, which will see more of the fish caught by its own vessels go into the US market. The new location saves on shipping time and costs and added nine new products to its own retail line for the Boston seafood show.

Company Background

The company was founded in 1973 by chairman Chuck Bundrant.
