Trident Seafood President Passes Away

By | August 8, 2012 - 10:21 am

Jerry Dowd, the president of Trident Seafoods, is dead of a heart attack. Dowd was on a fishing trip near Bristol Bay on Monday when his death occurred.

Dowd began working at Trident in 2004 and was appointed president of the company’s domestic operations in 2006. Prior to that he worked at both Tyson’s and ConAgra Poultry. His most recent work focused on expanding Trident’s operations in China. Trident issued a press release expressing their sympathies to Dowd’s family and their appreciation of Dowd’s business skills and leadership. They are not making any other comments. Trident owns processing plants in Wrangell, Petersburg, Ketchikan, St. Paul, Akutan, Kodiak, Naknek, and elsewhere in Alaska.
