Aleutian Spray Fisheries: Your Gateway to Marine Careers

About Us

leutian Spray Fisheries, Inc. was established in 1969 by Naval Architect, Henry Swasand, with the acquisition of the crab vessel Aleutian Spray.


As the firm grew during the 1970's, due to the rapid growth in the Bering Sea King crab fishery, other members of the Swasand family joined their father. Today, a third generation of Swasands is active in the management of Aleutian Spray Fisheries.


During the crab industry's peak, the Aleutian Spray Fisheries fleet grew to include the fishing vessels Starfish, Nordic Star, Starward and Starlite. Each vessel was built in Pacific Northwest shipyards to the Swasand family's exacting specifications.
