The Bristol Bay fishery is the largest sockeye fishery in the world and it all happens very quickly. It starts out slowly in early June, hits it peak around the 4th of July, and is usually all over by the 1st week of August. Due to the tremendous volume of product that is normally available during the peak season, Peter Pan utilizes its large and mobile Tender fleet of 30 plus vessels to ship our Bristol Bay product to our other processing facilities. This ensures quick handling and fresh processing. The Dillingham Plant employs approximately 320 employees. It also has one of the largest affiliated fishing fleets in Bristol B
