Wards Cove Co., once one of the Puget Sound region's largest private employers, is selling the last of its properties on Lake Union in Seattle.

The sales come as the 86-year-old company begins closing what's left of the firm that was also one of Alaska's largest fish-processing companies.

Wards Cove President and CEO Jan Supler estimated that the company used to employ around 3,000 people, mostly temporary workers, at the peak of salmon fishing season. Today the company has around 50 employees, he said.
