Dustin Hamilton is now with UniSea.

In his new role, he will be collaborating "in most aspects of UniSea's operation, production, and team-building endeavors," Hamilton said on a LinkedIn post.

He will also work on reducing UniSea's environmental footprint, overhead and increase its efficiency in the use of Alaska fishery resources, he added
