Ocean Beauty’s Petersburg Production Facility produces Ikura (salmon caviar), canned salmon, as well as Chum, Coho and Sockeye salmon for both fresh and frozen markets. The Petersburg plant usually operates from late June to mid-September, employing up to 160-180 people from all over the United States and Mexico.
Long before Ocean Beauty’s production facility was established in Petersburg, the Tlingits were the only inhabitants of Petersburg until Norwegians migrated to the fishing village a century ago. While the year-round population is only 3300, nearly 40,000 tourists visit Petersburg annually. Ocean Beauty employees like to spend their leisure hours hiking Raven’s Roost, eagle watching at Eagle’s Roost, halibut fishing, whale watching and dining at Petersburg’s many restaurants.
