Summer Seafood Processing Jobs in Remote Bristol Bay, Alaska
If your goal is to make and save as much money as possible over the summer, Coffee Point Seafoods is the locale for you. We operate two plants, Coffee Point and Big Creek, located on the Egegik River in Bristol Bay, Alaska – home of the largest and best managed sockeye salmon run in the world.
Remote site along the mighty Egegik River contributing to Bristol Bay's rich wild salmon fisheries.
About Coffee Point Seafoods
We bring in enough fish to keep you working (and making overtime!), and the remote location keeps all your hard-earned cash in the bank. Coffee Point has a 5-6 week season during June and July; if you are interested in working through July and into the August season we frequently transfer workers to other plants.
Who We Are
Coffee Point Seafoods (Coffee Point for short) is a wholly-owned subsidiary of E&E Foods (which is why our online application is on the E&E Foods website). Coffee Point operates two plants on the north beach of the Egegik River, the Coffee Point plant and the Big Creek plant. During the summer salmon season we employ approximately 200 people; hardworking men and women able to work up to 16-hour shifts.
What We Do
In order to keep fishermen fishing, we load their catch directly from fishing boats to landing craft vessels to trucks on the beach and then to the plant. Sockeye are processed within hours of being caught to preserve freshness, flavor, and texture. The Salmon are headed and gutted, graded, sized, individually quick frozen (IQF) and then packed in 50-pound boxes or 1,000 pound totes. We also produce Salted Salmon Roe (Sujiko).
Our Season Dates
The typical Bristol Bay salmon run starts mid-June and finishes around mid to late July. We transfer and coordinate many workers wishing to work a longer season to other seafood facilities.
