Jamie, who joined the staff in 2005, has penned more than 40 Top Stories, reporting on issues like economic fraud, labor, ocean acidifcation and bluefn tuna. He lives in South Portland, Maine. For this month's Top Story, Wright reached out to more than 40 of the continent's largest seafood suppliers in an effort to rank them by annual sales. He found them to be a confdent group with both eyes on the future. "The theme of the story is growth; everybody's looking to grow their business and increase revenue. And some have been pretty successful at that, namely the top canned-tuna producers," he says. "But not all companies' success is supply-driven, dependent on big tuna catches and Alaska salmon runs. Others fuel growth with strategic acquisitions. With favorable interest rates for borrowing money, I'd expect the consolidation trend to continue." n Christine Blank, who writes our What's in Store retail-seafood feature, also contributes to Christine has been covering the retail and restaurant industries for more than 15 years.
