Fishhawk Fisheries in Astoria is facing a state fine tied to seafood processing operations.
The state claims the company, owned by Steve Fick, exceeded pollutant limits allowed under its wastewater permit. Fishhawk Fisheries had been cited for going over these limits during multiple months in 2018, 2019 and 2020.
The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality has issued a penalty of $6,200.
Fick said he is working with the state.
