We believe safety isn't an accident - you have to work proactively to maintain a safe workplace and to train a safe workforce. That is why we encourage our crew to better themselves by attending safety courses offered through organazations such as

Fishermen's Finest lives by the adage, "People are the key to our Success"
Each year, we take time to recognize the men and women of Fishermen's Finest that have poured their hearts and soles into Our Company to make this all possible. While we had the crew of the US Intrepid gathered together recently, we took the opportunity to hand out the following awards to our 5 and 10 year crew.
Fishermen's Finest hosted a group of teens and their mentors from the Service Board today at our Kirkland Headquarters. It was a great opportunity to discuss the North Pacific fishing industry and career opporutnities as well as our new vessel (pictured) America's Finest (currently under construction at Dakota Creek Industries in Anacortes).
The mission of the Service Board is to mentor teens to conquer personal and cultural challenges through public service and outdoor adventure. The Service Board instills in High School aged youth a deep sense of life purpose based on an ethic of public service and conviction in their abilities to shape the future.
Joerene and Pacifico will be joining the Fishermen's Finest team this summer as interns ~ we look forward to giving them a more in depth look at a progressive fishing company and hope to inspire future 'Fishermen's Finest-like-thinking' employees for whatever career they ultimately choose.
