Our Mission

Fishing Partnership is a non-profit support services organization dedicated to improving the health, safety and economic security of commercial fishermen and their families. Founded in 1997, we bring critical support services and programs to more than 20,000 New England fishing families. With 4 offices in Gloucester, New Bedford, Plymouth and Chatham, we deliver Health and Wellness, Safety at Sea and Economic Security support services in the communities where fishing families live. 

Request Services

Are you or your spouse a fisherman? Do you come from a fishing family or are you a shoreline worker?

Complete the Request for Services form and we’ll answer your call.
