Follow Us on Social Media

Fishing Partnership belongs to a network of diverse stakeholders working together to build a better future for the commercial fishing industry. As seafood consumers, we can seek out and know the fishermen that risk their lives to feed us, as well as the shoreline workers living in coastal communities that support the fishermen that bring us their daily catch.

On social media we share information on our programs and services that support commercial fishing families. We also share insights and resources for seafood consumers in order to foster knowledge and understanding of the role each person can play in building a better seafood system for the 21st century. Follow us on Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Twitter and LinkedIn so you can stay informed on how to support your local fisheries today and for future generations.
