Washington seafood industry, Nebraska soybean farmers share similar challenges and goals

March 9th, 2023

Nearly 15 soybean farmers across Nebraska traveled to the Pacific Northwest to see where their crop goes once it leaves the state. The trip is also designed to expose the farmers to different types of agriculture.

On one of the stops, the group toured various portions of the Port of Grays Harbor Westport Marina that serves as a commercial fishing hub for the region.

Tours included Merino’s Seafood and Ocean Gold Seafood, which has the highest volume capacity for processing fish on the west coast.

Molly Bold, Westport Business Manager at the Port of Grays Harbor, shared more about commercial fishing and how it compares to row crop farming in the Midwest.

The See For Your Self program is sponsored by the Nebraska Soybean Board.
