Get the latest news here! The Southeast Alaska Seiners Association was formed in 1968 by a group of concerned Ketchikan commercial salmon purse seiners.
As time wore on in the early 1980's, SEAS expanded to include all of Southeast Alaska. Today the board of directors is from multiple towns throughout Southeast Alaska. Board members hail from Sitka, Petersburg, Ketchikan, Bellingham, Seattle and Burlington-Anacortes.
Thanks to the Captain and Crew of the F/V Western Harvester
Harbor Master David Borg had this to say-
"I wanted to send a shout out to the Captain and Crew of the F/V Western Harvester for their timely assistance Monday morning. Harbor staff were made aware of a 24 foot Bayliner Trophy taking on water and sinking on D Float in Statter Harbor. Staff attempted to dewater the vessel but couldn’t get ahead of the flooding. The vessel sank at the dock. Western Harvester came alongside and were able to hoist the vessel out of the water enough to allow pumps to dewater the boat. They saved the owner a lot of time, money and aggravation with their quick response! Kudos to the Western Harvester crew!
