F/V Northern Leader Launched

F/V NORTHERN LEADER was launched at Martinac Shipyard in Tacoma, WA, on January 26, 2013. At 184’3″ with a 42′ beam, NORTHERN LEADER will be among the largest freezer- longliners in operation, and the largest of the Alaskan Leader Fisheries fleet.

NORTHERN LEADER is a state-of-the-art catcher/processor vessel with diesel electric power, giving up to thirty-five-percent fuel savings over traditional engines. She will fish using Mustad Deep Sea System long lines that specifically target mature fish of the intended species, thus significantly reducing by-catch.
