Silver Bay's new man

Deckboss just returned from Seattle, where he attended Pacific Marine Expo. It was a vibrant show this year with plenty of industry buzz.

One especially interesting note: John Lowrance is joining Silver Bay Seafoods to help smooth out problems at the company's Bristol Bay plant at Naknek.

Fishermen familiar with the move say Lowrance is taking an ownership stake in Silver Bay.

Lowrance is a respected name in Alaska's salmon industry, having founded Leader Creek Fisheries, a small but innovative Bristol Bay processor. He sold his interest in Leader Creek in 2010.
