Serving Fishing Families Since 1952

Commercial fishermen established the North Carolina Fisheries Association, Inc. (NCFA) in 1952 to serve fishing families by protecting their heritage and promoting seafood. To achieve this, the association actively lobbies local, state and federal policymakers on behalf of the industry and engages in many outreach and education projects.

Over six decades later, NCFA still believes the commercial fishing industry begins and ends with families – from those who harvest seafood to those who enjoy it. We are committed to presenting an accurate portrait of the industry and the people who sustain it.
