Pacific Fishermen, Inc. 150 Years of Heritage Norwegian Shipbuilding

By Fred F. Poyner IV and John Douglas Dixon

A tribute to the Norwegian-heritage fishermen and shipwrights of the Pacific Northwest. An eclectic and essential group who have survived the ravages of the 1918 Spanish Flu and the 2021 COVID-19 Coronavirus. As a testament to this the King of Norway, HM King Harald V, specifically requested a visit to the shipyard on his tour of America in 2015. He specifically wanted to congratulate his cadre of Norwegian-American Fishing Pioneers and Knights-in-Waiting at a PacFish BBQ where he of course was served King Crab!

Author’s Note

The book is a culmination of the past five years with Doug and myself as a collaborative work as the authors.

Both the research involved and the writing has drawn a great deal from primary sources: interviews, oral histories, the archives of PFI, and most importantly, from Doug’s own experiences and insights.

The primary sources include firsthand shareholder and Board officer accounts, as well as archives from institutions such as MOHAI, PSM, the Seattle Municipal Archives, and Seattle Times.
