Seafood processor installs public viewing area

ASTORIA They say the two things no one wants to watch is the making of sausages and laws. Seafood is neither of these things, but still: Would watching seafood being processed make it less appetizing or more educational?

Andrew Bornstein of Bornstein Seafoods in Astoria is up for the challenge. He’s developing a viewing area at Bornstein’s processing facility that will allow consumers to see how fish becomes food. It’s seeded with a $25,000 loan from the Oregon Economic and Community Development Department.

Similar to the Tillamook Cheese Factory’s cheese-making showroom, Bornstein says this “interpretive center,” scheduled to open next year, will educate the public and beef up Astoria’s tourism offerings.“We believe it is an innovative approach to maintaining working waterfronts,” he says.

Two years ago, Bornstein Seafoods relocated its plant to the Port of Astoria’s central waterfront district. Financing for the interpretative center is still under negotiation, but Bornstein says it will include a fish market.
