A NON-PROFIT PROMOTING SUSTAINABLE FISHERIES SINCE 1952

Commercial fishermen established the North Carolina Fisheries Association, Inc. (NCFA) in 1952 to serve fishing families by advocating for sustainable fisheries, preserving fishing heritage, and promoting wild caught NC seafood. To achieve this, NCFA participates in every aspect of the fishery management process and actively lobbies both State and Federal policymakers on behalf of North Carolina’s fishing families. NCFA members and staff also engage in numerous outreach projects aimed at educating the public about North Carolina’s diverse commercial fishing industry.

More than six decades later, NCFA still believes North Carolina’s 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.

Board of Directors

The North Carolina Fisheries Association Board of Directors comprises members representing all of the State’s coastal regions as well as the many facets of the industry’s gear types, targeted species, and commodity groups. NCFA elects its board members and officers annually.
