Feds charge third Alaska seafood plant employee with Clean Air Act violation

The government has charged another former Dutch Harbor seafood plant employee for working with his supervisors to cover up their failure to use emissions reducing systems.

James Hampton worked as the assistant chief engineer at Westward Seafood Inc.’s Aleutian facility in Unalaska. He is the third defendant federal prosecutors in Alaska have charged with a Clean Air Act violation, a crime that carries a potential two-year jail term and a $500,000 fine.

The facility’s powerhouse supervisor, Raul Morales, was in charge of generating daily reports that monitored the use of the emission systems, but he has been charged with falsifying those records.

Hampton knew that the systems weren’t being operated and that the forms were false, according to a federal court document.
