Bristol Wave currently operates eight catcher processor vessels using hood and line gear, primarily in the Bering Sea, and has been in business for over 30 years. Bristol Wave sells its harvest, primarily Pacific cod, black cod (sablefish) and Greenland turbot, on a worldwide basis. We are the largest freezer longline company in the United States resulting from the recent merger of Clipper Seafoods and Blue North Fisheries.

Our fleet of freezer longline vessels use hook and line gear, primarily in the Bering Sea. Our seafood processors are responsible for the handling, panning, and packing of all products. Although this is the starting point for people entering the commercial fishing industry, it is a demanding, fast paced job which requires physical fitness and attention to detail. With experience, jobs become available on deck, learning how to haul gear among other duties.

Processors with Bristol Wave should have the following qualifications:

    • Ability to properly separate and process all products while maintaining a high level of accuracy.
    • Ability to package and store produce quickly and efficiently.
    • Ability to load and unload product (able to lift 25, 50, and 80 pounds regularly).
    • Ability to clean and bleed fish.
    • Ability to work for 16 hour shifts.
    • Ability to work in cold environments.
    • Willingness to follow directions, learn, and be part of a team.
