Anchorage fish plant sells off its equipment

Posted: Thursday, November 20, 2003

ANCHORAGE - Millions of dollars' worth of fish-processing equipment - including machines to cut, mince, shape, fry and freeze fish - is for sale at the defunct Alaska Seafood International plant.

The gear is being sold to help pay back money owed to two ASI investors, Bank SinoPac of Taiwan and a state agency, the Alaska Industrial Development and Export Authority.

ASI shut down in late October after four years of trying to break into large-scale manufacturing of value-added seafood goods made from Alaska salmon, halibut and other fish. The shutdown left a 202,000 state-owned, $50 million building in south Anchorage without a tenant and 43 employees out of work.

The plant was eventually supposed to employ 450 people.
