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.

    Edward D., Marblehead

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

    Tom M., Hingham

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

    Peter P., Gloucester

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