GREGG JONES, F/V SEA MINER
Aside from trolling for salmon, Gregg fished for halibut and black cod and took up scuba diving to harvest abalone and sea cucumbers. Over time Gregg upgraded boats and currently owns and operates the Sea Miner, a 46 ft steel freezer troller. Gregg believes in a quality product and you can tell from the immaculate condition of his vessel and the care taken in the fish he brings to market. The fish caught aboard the Sea Miner is Frozen at Sea which means each fish is cleaned, then undergoes a multi-step process of freezing which creates a product that when thawed, tastes as if it was just pulled from the sea. As Fall approaches, Gregg is setting up the boat for diving and harvesting Sea Cucumber. Gregg has a hunter gatherer mentality, “If there is something to harvest, I want to get my hands on it!” Aside from fishing, Gregg is an avid hunter and loves to combine his time at sea with trips to remote bays and regions where he can be outside and in nature and enjoy the bountiful life that Alaska offers.
