The Cape Cod Commercial Fishermen's Alliance was launched in 1991 by a group of local commercial fishermen who saw the need for better fisheries management and wanted their experiences to inform it. We're an organization rooted in first-hand knowledge of ocean life and committed to sustaining our tradition of small-scale fishing. Our work—on fisheries management, scientific projects and community education—is all aimed at protecting fish and fishing for future generations.
Board of Directors
We're guided by a gifted group of leaders. Our board includes commercial fishermen and other members of the Cape Cod business community, along with experts in science, policymaking and finance.
With backgrounds in everything from marine conservation to public policy and from fishing to economics, the Fishermen's Alliance staff brings a remarkable range of skills and experience to our work.
