Capital Seafood rising from the ashes – literally

Eastern Passage-based Capital Seafood International is getting ready to rise from the ashes after a fire destroyed its lobster processing and storage building last November. “Last year, it was terrible,” Jiu Chang, vice-president of Capital Seafood, said in an interview Thursday. “Not only did we lose the working area and the equipment but also the production. We just can’t do anything.” The electrical fire that ripped through the two-storey building on Government Wharf Road last year took out processing equipment, damaged lobster holding tanks and burned through two offices.
