A US judge has ruled that transportation of Alaska pollock on the Bayside Canadian Railway (BCR) does not comply with the Third Proviso of the Jones Act.

What is the Bayside Program?

The Bayside Program is a transportation route American Seafoods developed using an exemption to the Jones Act.

Under the program, Alaska Reefer Management (ARM), Kloosterboer International Forwarding (KIF) and Kloosterboer Dutch Harbor (KDH) -- all American Seafoods subsidiaries -- move fish stored in Dutch Harbor, Alaska onto foreign-built or owned vessels, which then transport the fish through the Panama Canal to the group's Kloosterboer Bayside facility in New Brunswick, Canada.
