Marine Stewardship Council

Westward Seafoods has been a premier provider of Alaska’s finest seafood since 1991. Since then, we’ve grown in our partnerships, and are dedicated to the continued sustainability of fisheries in Alaska and around the world. Whether it’s through our state-of-the-art plants or our involvement with The Marine Stewardship Council (MSC), an independent, global, non-profit organization, we are committed to the best our oceans have to offer.

Maruha Nichiro

Quality Control

At Westward Seafoods we take food safety seriously. Our in house labs and our HACCP approved state-of-the-art processing plants follow extremely stringent quality control procedures. This ensures our products are the best the ocean has to offer, and exceeds our customers expectations.


Westward Seafoods, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Maruha-Nichiro, was established in 1989 and started operations in Dutch Harbor in 1991. In 2001, Western Alaska Fisheries merged with Westward Seafoods, allowing us to expand our operations to Kodiak. With our main production plant in Dutch Harbor, focusing on Alaskan Pollock, and our Kodiak plant - Westward Seafoods has the ability to source more Alaskan fish and shellfish from the Bering Sea to the Gulf of Alaska, in order to better meet the demands of the world-wide growing market for quality sustainable seafood. Today, Westward Seafoods continues to be a leader in Alaska’s seafood industry. The future is bright for Westward Seafoods as natural and healthy seafood nutrition becomes more important to consumers. Sustainability has a good future!
