City officials announced Thursday that another person in Unalaska tested positive for COVID-19, bringing the total number of positive local cases to nine. 

The individual who tested positive is an employee of Icicle Seafoods and has been in quarantine since arriving on the island June 25.

For decades, the Northern Victor was a nomadic vessel.

It spent part of the year processing pollock in Unalaska’s Beaver Inlet. And the rest, it spent traveling back and forth from Seattle for maintenance.

That finally changed this season, when Icicle Seafoods had the boat drop its vagabond act and settle down at the dock for good.

KUCB stopped by the Northern Victor recently to see how its new home has affected business.

It’s a windy day on the Unalaska spit, with gusts reaching more than 90 miles per hour.
