King Cove, located 600 air miles SW of Anchorage at the end of the Alaska Peninsula is home to Peter Pan’s largest processing facility. King Crab, bairdi and opilio tanner crab, pollock, cod, Salmon, halibut and black cod harvested in both the Bering Sea and the Gulf of Alaska are processed throughout the year. The plant, with origins back to the early 1900’s, has the largest salmon canning capacity of any plant in Alaska. All five species of salmon are abundant in the waters nearby King Cove. Salmon still remains a major part of the annual operation but in recent years the plant has expanded and streamlined whitefish operations. The plant produces several different product forms including pollock fillet block, shatterpack fillets, mince and surimi. Cod shatterpack fillets and salt cod are mainstays. At peak seasons, both winter and summer, nearly 500 employees man the operation.
Peter Pan Seafood’s Dillingham operation is located on the shores of the Nushagak River in Bristol Bay Alaska. It is Peter Pan’s oldest facility and actually lays claim to being the oldest continually operating Cannery in Alaska. The products produced by this operation are a wide variety of fresh & frozen salmon products as well as Canned. 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 Bay with over 180 fishing drift fishing boats and 110 set net operations. While the majority of its associated fishing fleet call Alaska home, the fleet and many of our employees literally come from all over the world.

The product forms include; frozen headed and gutted, fillets, teien (salted fillets) and sujiko (salted salmon eggs). During peak production there is a crew of 140 people. Being a remote facility it must be self sufficient in providing for all housing, food, electricity, water and other supplies. Peter Pan buys fish from and supports a fleet of 105 drift gill netters and 30 set netters, both resident and non-resident fishermen.
The North Peninsula area is somewhat unique in that the sockeye salmon runs are spread out over the summer from early June through mid September. This long season and the moderate rate of the harvest over its length provide us the opportunity to concentrate on producing very high quality salmon products.
