Icicle Seafoods will pay $900,000 for dumping fish waste off the coast of Unalaska in a settlement reached with the Environmental Protection Agency. The settlement was agreed upon in June and filed with the agency this week. The case started four years ago when an inspector for the state Department of Environmental Conservation found a one-acre pile of fish waste had accumulated under the Northern Victor, a floating processor owned by Icicle and anchored in Udagak Bay off Unalaska. The waste amounted to a violation of the Clean Water Act.
