An Alaska's judge's ruling over the weekend to immediately release 26 million pounds of Alaska pollock stranded the past 50 days at the Port of Bayside in New Brunswick, Canada, is welcome news for Nippon Suisan Kaisha (Nissui)-owned seafood supplier King & Prince.

King & Prince CEO Michael Alexander, in affidavit filed Oct. 8, told the court if his company didn't immediately receive its Alaska pollock, "it will lose its newly acquired customers and the value of its recent investments in the fish sandwich product line."
