Something fishy happened where the Port of Kalama sits today.
The Doty Fish Company was hatched in 1895.
Built right on the Columbia River, fishermen could unload their catch directly to the processing plant taking advantage of the deep-water port—a feature the Port of Kalama capitalizes on to this day.
Through the intersection of the river and rail, the world got a taste of Pacific salmon.
We hope you’ll enjoy this entertaining video celebrating our 100th birthday!
Happy Centennial, Port of Kalama!
