Captain Hezel has been associated with Fishermen's Finest dating back to 1991; since 1997 he has been the Captain of the US INTREPID and has led the Amendment 80 fleet at sea and ashore.
Listed below are all the National Fisherman Highiner recipients for 2012 and 2013
When asked about the prestigious award for Captain Hezel, General Manager Kristian Uri reflected upon his 17 years of working together at Fishermen's Finest:
'Bob is a first generation fisherman that has made a name for himself by innovating, producing, and running a tight ship.'
'He's a true team builder that has the natural ability to get those that work for him to take responsibility for their position aboard the vessel and to work together towards the common goal - running a safe, efficient, lucrative fishing operation.'
We are pleased to recognize that Highliners run in the family; Amanda Heyano's (our HR Manager/Purchasing & Travel Agent) father Robert Heyano of Dillingham, Alaska is also a 2013 Highliner Award recipient.
