The Cape Cod Commercial Fishermen's Alliance has been working with fishermen for more than 25 years to create solutions for a balanced ecosystem and profitable fishing communities. Our members are small-scale, independent fishermen, most operating family-owned fishing businesses.
We are a unique and irreplaceable organization, worthy of your financial support. Here’s what your generosity enables us to do every day:
We focus on assessing the needs of today’s fishermen with the responsibility of providing healthy oceans and strong fisheries for the next generation – a delicate and important balance.
We provide fishermen access to affordable quota and business support services to grow sustainable fishing businesses.
We train fishermen to engage with the multifaceted issues and policymaking processes that impact their businesses, communities and ocean environment.
We promote and market local seafood building the domestic demand for fish such as skate and dogfish.
We are a voice for fishermen by attending meetings and reviewing legislative documents.
We define sensible and informed fishing regulations and pilot sustainable fishing practices.
We transfer our innovative solutions around the country.
Our organization is resourceful and doesn’t give up. More than 2,000 fishermen and 1,400 shellfishermen on Cape Cod and the Islands are directly impacted by our work.
But, we can’t do it on our own. That is why your contribution tonight can make a difference, touching a vital part of our community: the fishing families of Cape Cod.
We need you. Join our efforts, and together, we’ll build a future for fish and fishing. Make a donation now to keep Cape Cod’s small-boat fishing fleets in the game.
We value your contributions. Thank you for making our work possible.
