August 26, 2021
OBI Seafoods celebrated 200,000 cases of salmon packed by sounding their steam whistle at noon on Wednesday.
It was the first time since 2013 that OBI has canned 200,000 cases according to OBI Fleet Manager Don Spigelmyre.
"It's basically a celebration to let the town know that there's still salmon coming through," Spigelmyre said.
This was the second time that OBI sounded the steam whistle this year. They previously marked 100,000 cases of salmon canned on August 9.
