SITKA, ALASKA The city of Sitka Friday night (2-15-08) signed off on a deal that will hand over 5-acres of waterfront, tidelands, a warehouse, and dock to a one-year-old startup company.
Silver Bay Seafoods began processing pink salmon last summer in Sawmill Cove, the former home of the APC pulp mill. Citing worries over a possible interruption in its operations while the city repaired the old pulp dock and warehouse, Silver Bay has offered to take on the multi-million dollar job itself – in exchange for land and buildings it now leases.
