F/T Pacific Glacier
The Pacific Glacier was built in 1976 at Todd Shipyard in Seattle as a supply boat. Building on the Northern Glacier’s success Glacier Fish Company had the Pacific Glacier redesigned by FiskerStrand & Eldoy and rebuilt by Mjellem & Karlsen in Norway in 1988. The Pacific Glacier is equipped with the latest state-of-the-art Baader fillet machinery, Japanese surimi equipment and Kvaerner Eureka refrigeration. In 2008 the vessel underwent major modernization to include a new wheelhouse and the most modern factory system in the Alaskan fishing fleet.
