Location: Craig marine waters Type: Suspicious circumstances
On 4/10/16 at 1134 hours, Alaska Wildlife Troopers received a report of a suspicious box floating in the marine waters near Craig. AWT responded via the P/V Interceptor and discovered the box was a military shipping container for a guided missile. During the investigation, a mariner in the vicinity radioed AWT to report they had located an additional guided missile shipping container. Explosives Ordinance Disposal was contacted and helped determine both containers were void of their original contents and the containers were safe to remove from the water to be disposed of. The history of the containers, or where they originated, is unknown at this time. Information on tags attached to the containers was passed along to military authorities.
Seattle-based Trident Seafoods Corp. announced it has acquired a value-added processing plant in Germany.
The purchase price was not disclosed.
"The company we acquired today has long been a major user and marketer of single-frozen wild
Alaska pollock, and this is a logical fit for us," said Trident CEO Joe Bundrant. "Trident can now offer European customers the assurance of full control of our product supply chain at a time when transparency is becoming increasingly important to consumers."
