Midnight Sun was built in 1938 for Nootka Packing Company at North Van Ship Repair Ltd. which later became part of Burrard Drydock. She was built as a table seiner and packed herring and pilchards in the early days. In the late 1940's she operated as a herring and salmon seiner. She has fished from the Bering Sea (Alaska) to the US West Coast.
