Our Work

Here at the Fishermen’s Alliance, we believe that fishermen possess the solutions to the challenges they face. Whether it’s an improvement to fishing regulations, expanded research programs, or educational and economic development projects in our communities, our work is guided by the energy, innovation and expertise of local fishermen.

Together, we’re building a better future for fish and fishing.
