Northline Seafoods announced the successful funding and launch of a new project to build the world’s most sustainable and efficient mobile commercial salmon processing platform, with construction planned to begin at the Port of Bellingham in Washington State in January 2023.

The “Hannah” is a one-of-a-kind vertically integrated vessel that will operate in Bristol Bay during the commercial fishing season.

“We developed the Hannah to produce higher quality fish through a more efficient process that benefits both fishermen and customers,” said Northline CEO Ben Blakey. “This project is a continuation of Northline’s commitment to innovation and environmental sustainability in the fishing industry.”

The “Hannah” will revolutionize salmon processing by deep freezing fish whole at the fishing grounds in Bristol Bay, AK and hauling them back to its base of Pacific Northwest operations in Bellingham, WA where the fish will be stored, reprocessed and distributed year-round all from one vessel.

Northline Seafoods recently closed on a $40M USDA backed guarantee Food Supply Chain loan for the Hannah project that was made possible by the Biden Administration’s “Build Back Better” initiative, and financed by Greater Commercial Lending (GCL), which provides loans to businesses and organizations in under-served and rural communities.
