Alaska Ocean Seafoods
Stacey and Jacobsen represent injured fishermen and fish processors in claims against the Seattle-based fishing companies working in the Bering Sea. If you have been injured working as a crewman, deckhand, or fish processor aboard a vessel operated by Alaska Ocean Seafoods L.P., you should contact an experienced maritime attorney to learn about your rights under the Jones Act and federal maritime law. Crewmen working aboard fishing vessels are covered by federal maritime law when they are injured working at sea.
Alaska Ocean Seafoods is headquartered in Seattle, Washington, and operates the catcher processor Alaska Ocean. The Alaska Ocean is 379 feet long and carries a crew of 150. It is the largest catcher processor fishing in the Bering Sea. The crew of the vessel works seven days a week during the season, and is paid on an hourly basis to catch and process pollock and Pacific whiting. The vessel produces surimi, fillets, roe and fish meal.Injured At Sea? We Can Help.
