Adak fish processor gets investment

Posted: Thursday, July 20, 2000

ADAK (AP) -- A Seattle seafood company has bought into a fledgling processing company on Adak Island and has formed a new company to operate it.

NorQuest Seafoods Inc. said Wednesday it has acquired ''certain assets'' of Adak Seafoods and will operate the plant under the name NorQuest-Adak Inc. The purchase price was not disclosed.

NorQuest's John Garner will head the new company with Adak's Kjetil Solberg and Irgen Iversen staying on as managers.

The Aleut Corp., a Native corporation, controls the former Navy base at Adak and leased facilities to Adak Seafoods in the fall of 1998.

The Aleut Corp. hopes to transform Adak into a fishing community.

The plant processes cod, halibut, crab and other seafood.

Adak is 1,200 miles southwest of Anchorage.
