Maine Coast Fisherman's Associate
The Maine Coast Fisherman’s Association is an industry-led nonprofit organization that advocates on behalf of the community-based, inshore fishermen of Maine. MCFA has been core partner of the Marine Conservation Initiative’s groundfish management reform work in New England since 2010. The fishermen who formed the association brought together their voices under the common goal of protecting and restoring Maine’s fishing heritage. Fishermen know that a well managed fishery must support local businesses, enhance coastal communities and leave a healthier marine environment for future generations. As stewards of the Gulf of Maine, the Maine Coast Fisherman’s Association is committed to rebuilding our struggling fisheries and strengthening coastal communities.
