The story of Chuck Bundrant and Trident Seafoods is more than a business biography. Its a tale of true grit, salt air, and danger. The stories are told by those who pioneered the fisheries, bucked the political tides, built the Alaska Seafood Industry, and literally risked their lives to do it!
Epilogue: The Next Generation
Trident Seafoods was founded on Chuck Bundrant's vision of combining "talented people, lasting relationships and quality seafood...from the source to the plate."
Our friend, boss, and founder passed away on October 17th. He was a true inspiration and His legacy will live on.
We invite you to pull up a chair and hear from his son, and Trident's CEO Joe Bundrant, as he reads the Epilogue written in 2013: The Next Generation.
Chapter 1: North to Alaska
The story of Trident Seafoods begins in 1961, when a 19-year-old kid with nothing but a dream drove an old Ford from Tennessee to Seattle, in search of a great adventure at sea.
Bundrant could never have imagined how far that little “adventure” was going to take him.

Bogus corporate mythmaking.
