Once more I want to explore the possibility for a separate photo category for fish factories/fish processors. A number of these pass through the Inside Passage each season to and from Alaska.
Some are huge; others are smaller, like Angie, IMO 7309297, a former US Army BSP (barge, self-propelled)
converted to fish processor:http://www.shipspotting.com/gallery/photo.php?lid=3174000
These vessels don't look like fishing vessels, work like fishing vessels and more important, they are not even classified as such (carry no ADFG registrations).
