Kaare Ness, a founding partner in Trident Seafoods, has died.
A native of Norway, Ness made his way to Alaska and "became not only a highline crab skipper, but a loyal partner and counselor to so many others, including Chuck Bundrant with whom he built the Billikin, Alaska's first modern king crab catcher-processor," the company said in a press release. "Together they founded what has become North America's largest vertically integrated seafood harvesting and processing company — Trident Seafoods."
