Phoenix Processor Limited Partnership

Phoenix Processor Limited Partnership

Phoenix Processor Limiter Partnership (PPLP) started in 1993 as the marketing and management company for the SS Ocean Phoenix.

As the groundfish fishery changed in the 1990's, PPLP managed the conversion of the SS Ocean Phoenix to a fish processing ship that secured a market for U.S. Catcher Boats to deliver fish at sea.

In 2010 the Partners of the SS Ocean Phoenix merged with the Partners of the M/V Excellence. PPPLP now owns and operates two of the three at sea processing ships in the North Pacific pollock and hake fisheries.

Our goal remains to process freshly caught groundfish into a quality product easily marketed around the world.

Located in Seattle, Washington, PPLP provides services to the SS Ocean Phoenix and M/V Excellence which participate in the Bering Sea Pollock fisheries as well as the Pacific Whiting fishery off the coasts of Washington and Oregon. Both vessels receive fish from the partners catcher boats and process that fish at sea.

Founded in 1993
