Cantwell Statement on the 100th Anniversary of Fishermen’s Terminal in Seattle
Cantwell: ‘Fishermen’s Terminal is a gathering place that defines Seattle and keeps our maritime industry thriving’
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Maria Cantwell (D-WA) issued the following statement honoring the 100th anniversary of Seattle’s Fishermen’s Terminal:
“Fishermen’s Terminal is an icon of the Pacific Northwest, a hub of commerce and a center for our community. For the last century, Fishermen’s Terminal has played a vital role in the maritime and fishing industries in Washington state and Alaska. Half of all seafood caught in the United States comes through Fishermen’s Terminal. That means jobs that Washington state families have been able to build their lives on. About 88,000 jobs depend on our state’s fishing industry.
“Fishermen’s Terminal is home to the North Pacific fishing fleet, but it is more than just a place for vessels to be moored and repaired. It is a gathering place that defines Seattle and keeps our maritime industry thriving. I wish safe passage and good fishing to our fishermen as they head out to sea for the summer season.”
