Blue North, a Seattle-based fisheries company operating in the Bering Sea and Gulf of Alaska, is announcing plans Tuesday for what it calls “one of the world’s most environmentally friendly” fishing vessels.
The company said it has signed a contract with Dakota Creek Industries in Anacortes to build the boat.
Designed by Norwegian ship-design firm Skipsteknisk AS, the 191-foot longliner, model ST-155L, is expected to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2014.
