Statement on the Passing of Erik Breivik

WASHINGTON, DC December 5, 2018 — The seafood community has lost another pioneer.

A giant in the groundfish world, Erik Breivik was the founder of Glacier Fish and a pioneer in Bering Sea fisheries. Affectionately known as “The Viking,” Breivik brought the dedication and skill of a Norwegian fisherman to Alaska’s icy waters. Eric Breivik continued that global perspective as he built customers for Alaska pollock and other North Pacific seafood around world.

He was direct, honest and intelligent, qualities that made him a superb executive, a visionary fishermen, and a devoted father. He will be missed by those in the global groundfish business and beyond.
