    The Northern Victor – a 380-foot processing ship owned by Icicle Seafoods – spent decades splitting its seasons between processing pollock in Unalaska’s Beaver Inlet and traveling to Seattle for maintenance. In 2018, the vessel found a permanent home docked at Unalaska’s spit.Now, Icicle is transferring ownership of its floating operation to Westward Seafoods, which operates a large processing plant down Captain’s Bay Road.
