American Seafoods Group LLC, the Seattle-based seafood conglomerate that acquired Good Harbor Fillet earlier this week, intends to dramatically shrink if not close the home-grown Gloucester business, putting about 110 people out of work, city officials confirmed Friday. The officials say of the 110, about 70 are employees and 40 are contractors.

“I have been briefed on the situation with Good Harbor Fillet, and while I do not speak for the company, my understanding is that there will be considerable job loss in Gloucester as a result of the consolidation,” said Mayor Carolyn Kirk.

In announcing the acquisition Tuesday, American Seafoods Group said it intended to “integrate” Good Harbor into American Pride Seafoods, the New Bedford subsidiary of the parent company. But a spokeswoman for American Pride insisted no decisions had been made on the future of the employees.
