What Fishermen Are Saying
Fishing Partnership has had a major impact on my life. In these uncertain times in the fishing industry, having access to affordable health insurance is a great relief. Thank you, your efforts are much appreciated.

A lot of fisherman and their families would be without health care if it were not for you guys. Keep up the good work.

We can’t thank Fishing Partnership enough for being there when we needed affordable quality health coverage.

Fishing Partnership is the best thing that ever happened to fishermen. Without it, I wouldn’t know what to do about my doctor bills.
