Founder in 1973 by fishermen Chuck Bundrant today, Trident's value-added processing facilities in Anacortes, Bellingham, and Seattle, Washington, turn out an ever-increasing selection of finished, ready-to-prepare seafood items for U.S. foodservice and retail distribution
Something's "supposed" to be fishy at Trident Seafoods. The vertically integrated seafood business hauls in salmon, crab, and assorted other fin- and shell-fish from the icy waters of Alaska and the Pacific Northwest, then processes and cans or freezes them for retail and foodservice customers.
The #2 North American seafood supplier in 2008, (behind Tri Marine), Trident Seafoods operates a fleet of some 30 processing boats and trawlers, as well as about a dozen onshore processing plants.
The company's brands include Trident, Louis Kemp, and SeaLegs brand of surimi (crab-flavored processed fish). Trident also owns Port Chatham Smoked Seafood, which smokes salmon and tuna as gift products under the Portlock label. Canned brands: Lily, Rubenstein, Prelate, Tulip, Royal, Sea Alaska, Whitney, Sno Tip, Faust, Bear & Wolf
