The decision divides the Pier 2 fish-processing warehouse between Seattle-based Da Yang and Bellingham, Washington-based Bornstein Seafoods, which has already secured two spaces in the warehouse through the Port Commission. The expansion provides more processing and cold storage space.

…The lease provides the Port with nearly $25,855 a month. Da Yang receives rent credits of $1,200 a month through 2027 for improvements made to the property. The fish processor also gets credits of $1,700 a month for 48 months to offset repairs to the crumbling docks that the company had performed around 2013 without the Port’s permission. The work was done before much of the current commissioners and staff had joined the Port.
