Nov. 16, 2017 – APICDA & Trident Seafoods announce joint ownership of Bering Pacific Seafoods

The Bering Pacific Seafoods plant is located in False Pass, Alaska and processes seafood from both the Bering Sea and Pacific Ocean. It produces the highest quality wild Alaska salmon in the world. Other products include halibut, sablefish and Pacific cod.

False Pass is located on the eastern shore of Unimak Island on a strait connecting the Pacific Gulf of Alaska to the Bering Sea. It is 646 air miles southwest of Anchorage. The name False Pass is derived from the fact that the Bering Sea side of the strait is extremely shallow and cannot accommodate large vessels.

The city of False Pass was incorporated in 1990 and has about 30 residents. The Isanotski Corporation (originally known as the False Pass Corporation) is the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act (ANCSA) village corporation for the community and the major landholder in the area. The False Pass Tribal Council is the federally recognized tribe, with responsibility for the health and welfare needs of the community.
