Fishermen’s Finest Trawlers Offload In Seward by Gavin Stern for the Seward Journal August 1, 2012
Fishermen’s Finest are back.
Intrepid, a 185-foot long commercial trawler, and its partner, 160-foot American Number 1, offloaded 700 tons of fish at the Seward cruise ship terminal on July 21. Both of the Seattle-based ships are owned by Fishermen’s Finest of Seattle, Washington.
“We like to say they have the two best boats,” said Bob Hezel, captain of the Intrepid. Hezel, from Whidbey Island, Washington, has fished the Gulf of Alaska for 33 years.
