Strategically located between the iconic Copper River king and sockeye salmon fisheries and the abundant, hatchery-enhanced pink salmon fisheries of Prince William Sound, Trident’s two Cordova facilities enjoy a steady supply of high-quality, wild Alaska salmon from mid-May through September. Fresh sockeye and king salmon from the Copper River dominate production in May and early June. As sockeye, chum and pink salmon runs ramp up through the summer in Prince William Sound, H&G and frozen fillet production increases in both plants. Peak seasonal employment at the two plants is upwards of 500 workers. Cordova North focuses heavily on the production of traditional can-packed and skinless-boneless canned salmon. In addition to this unique form of canned product, Cordova North also produces large volumes of high-quality wild salmon oil for human health supplements. Together with hydrolysates for animal feed and organic fertilizers, Cordova’s product line highlights Trident’s continuing investments in new-product development and full utilization.
