Copper River Seafoods (CRS) and Alaskan Leader Fisheries (ALF) this week announced the creation of a marketing alliance to boost hook-and-line Alaskan wild cod trade.

Nick Delaney, managing director of ALF, said both firms will benefit from the other. The alliance will enable CRS to access high-quality whitefish and world-famous salmon all year long. ALF, meanwhile, will benefit from CRS’s domestic marketing expertise and strong customer relationships.

Scott Blake, president and chief executive officer of CRS, remarked that "both companies were formed by Alaskan fishermen who share many of the same core values, including the creation of more full-time jobs in Alaska."

ALF is one of the most important sources of sustainably harvested, frozen-at-sea, hook-and-line caught, wild Alaskan cod.

Less than a month ago, ALF acquired its most recent commercial fishing ship, the 184-foot Northern Leader, from Tacoma-based J.M. Martinac Shipbuilding Corp. It is expected to be fully operational in the Bering Sea this coming August.
 
In an official statement, both firms said that “by fully utilizing the vessel's targeted catch and incorporating cutting-edge green technology, such as a diesel electric propulsion system that substantially reduces fuel consumption, the Northern Leader is one of the most innovative fishing vessels in the world”.

"We will be dedicating 100 per cent of the Northern Leader's Alaskan cod to our programme with Copper River Seafoods, which gives customers total traceability and the benefits of the most modern and innovative quality controlled processing line," commented Rob Wurm, chief executive officer of Alaskan Leader Fisheries.

ALF, Alaska’s biggest longline fishing firm, owns four freezer-longliners has facilities in Anchorage and Dillingham.

CRS, a seafood processor and marketing company, has processing branches in Dutch Harbor, Togiak, Cordova, Anchorage and Keniak.
