Short description

Trident Seafoods was founded in 1973 by Chuck Bundrant and two fisherman partners. Headquartered in Seattle, Washington, Trident’s focus on commercial fishing and primary processing operations continues to be in Alaska. Over the past 50 years, the scope of species harvested and processed by Trident has expanded from king crab to include virtually every commercial species of salmon, whitefish, and crab harvested in Alaska, as well as Pacific whiting off the West Coast. Trident also expanded its global supply chain to include sourcing from a network of trusted seafood producers worldwide.
