  1. Today
  2. Scary news off the coast of Massachusetts for the Portland-based Emmy Rose:
  3. Last week
  4. Scandies Rose Alaska king crab vessel build at 1:50 scale created by Isaksen Scale Models
  5. The last fish expo my family and I attended was back in 2018. My girls loved everything about it and have since talked about wanting to go back. I think loading up on all the chocolate, pens, hats and even new boots was the highlight of their trip that year. A bonus was for our girls to see their Papa’s boat named after their daddy on one of the displays! 🙂 I hope we will be able to attend another expo in person in the near future! I hope everyone stays safe, and I look forward to checking out the new cookbook from the Salmon Sisters! 🌊
  6. My family is big in the commercial fishing industry, so missing out on Fish Expo 2020 is almost missing out on 'family time'. Every year at expo, we travel sometimes hundreds of miles just to make it to the open bar so we can bullshit with our friends and take over the Trident party (maybe they would consider giving us a bigger portion of crab this year... I can't fill up on crab tails and cocktail sauce). I have so many memories just in that part of Seattle and I hold them precious to me, especially now. All we can hope for is a better expo next year, and a good season in 2021!
  7. I've tried to go to Expo for the past two years, but haven't been able to. I've heard so much about it from my captain and I was looking forward to finally making it there this year! I guess I'll just have to wait until next year... It sounds like a fun and interesting couple of days!
  8. I remember this day like it was yesterday!!!! Cold but such good times!!!!
  9. We hope you all enjoy the panel discussion - please let us know if you have any questions or would like any additional information on what was presented.
  10. Missing out this year, actual face to face meetings with customers and friends throughout the industry, demonstrating our Atmospheric Oil mist and Gas Leakage detection system(s). If anyone is interested in learning more about it on how to protect the machinery spaces against potential fires, shoot me an e-mail @ wp@daspos.com We hope to see you all next year again...
  11. What I miss about the expo this year, is missing out on the opportunity to see customers at the expo, as well as missing the opportunity to be on the cutting edge of what is new in the industry. The expo is always a fun event to kick off the upcoming season, and it just isn't the same without it.
  12. We are thrilled to participate in the PME Career Fair. One of our very talented marine engineers, Lydia Benger will be sharing her career journey and experience working in the maritime industry. Plus, EBDG is hiring! Check out our careers page to learn more!
  13. It is certainly disappointing that we will not be able to meet face to face at PME this year - it has always been an event I looked forward to so that I could talk to the fishermen as well as give advice to any of the young people looking to make a career in the naval architecture/marine engineering field. I have been with Jensen now for 41 years, and I guess you could say I found a job that i really enjoy. Please do not hesitate to post any comments or questions, and we will endeavor to respond to them!
  14. Missing convention this year makes me grateful for all I have been able to do. There is so much goodness surrounding us, its hard to focus on what I am missing out on. Sure, it stinks not being in the city, with all the modern conveniences, good brewery’s, street markets, shopping, and people watching, but in return I have my health.
  15. This would have been my first time at the Expo. I'm just starting in commercial fishing (salmon and albacore so far!) and I would have loved the opportunity to learn more about the industry and community.
  16. I have never actually heard or been to an expo until I started following the salmon sisters on Instagram. I followed them because I was looking for what it was like to work on an Alaskan fishing boat because I’m planning to move there. I’m so glad I started following them because they have showed me a side of Alaska that I hadn’t seen before.
  17. I am so sad I missed this!! I love the Salmon Sisters and all they stand for, especially making and eating foods from our own backyards. <3 This is my first expo, I'm excited to learn more about the industry.
  18. I miss my hanging with my friends and drinking beers and hearing all the good fishing stories from all the old fishermen 💞💞
  19. Things I miss about the Expo? Where do I freaking start? 1. I miss Seattle and my clean hotel room where the Room Fairy comes to replace my toilet paper. 2. I miss all the free chocolate. 3. I miss my free pens!! I actually have stooped to swiping pens from the bank. They are soooooo boring. 4. I miss seeing my friends. 5. I miss my tribe. Down here in California, I am so weary of trying to explain commercial fishing to people. 6. I miss all the positive energy, that we're fighting the same battle. 7. Of course I miss checking out what's new in the fish business. Should I go on or shall I just relive the last years on my facebook posts? Stay Safe Everyone.
  20. I miss wandering the aisles of the Expo, talking with the reps, and looking for my husband who is always a few booths behind me. And, coming home with enough pens for the next year! Since it is held during my birthday week, a trip to the Expo in Seattle is a great way to celebrate.
  21. I miss the expo because of it being an expo. Online you don’t get to meet and see the faces of those in the industry and well it’s just not the same.
  22. F/V Nor'Quest with another gorgeous Alaskan sunset.
  23. My husband, children and I will miss bumping into all our friends and meeting new people while at expo. The children will especially miss the free chocolates and toy swag they receive while we’re wandering around talking to people.
  24. I don't usually get to go to the Pacific Expo, but I would have enjoyed seeing old colleagues from around Alaska and the NW, both fishermen and managers. Thoroughly enjoyed the interview with the Salmon Sisters, their sustainable practices, and philosophy of giving back. I will be ordering their fresh and smoked salmon.
