The Pacific Coast Federation of Fishermen's Associations (PCFFA) is the most politically active trade association of commercial fishermen on the west coast. For nearly 30 years, we have lead the industry in protecting and assuring the rights of individual fishermen - fighting for the long-term survival of commercial fishing as a productive livelihood and way of life.
PCFFA is a federation of many different port and fishermen's marketing associations. Our members span the US west coast from San Diego to Alaska. As a "bottom-up" organization, it begins with the individual fishing man or woman who belong to their local association. PCFFA’s working family fishermen and women operate their vessels to bring to America and the world the ocean's rich bounty of seafood. Our members catch fresh wild salmon, Dungeness and rock crab, squid, herring, swordfish, shark, black cod, rockfish, albacore, sea cucumber, California halibut and flounder, urchin and abalone. We are small and medium sized family businesses. Our members fish the waters both great distances from their home and near shore coastal waters. We are professionals who derive our incomes largely from harvesting the sea. Large or small vessel operator, full-time or part-time, we all share a common passion for this way of life, a dedication to its future, and a commitment to a sustainable resource.
PCFFA fights for fishing interests in the halls of Congress, implementing new Coast Guard safety regulations, promoting high quality seafood, implementing the Central Valley Project Improvement Act to double salmon populations, bringing suit against the government over salmon-killing dam operations in the Columbia River, and working to end the discharge of pollutants into our rivers and estuaries. PCFFA will be there as long as individual fishermen and others concerned for the long-term health of the fisheries are there to support it.
Please, donate to PCFFA to make sure that our fisheries and the men and women who are the first to defend them, have a sustainable future. To make a contribution to PCFFA, contact Harriet Lew at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (415) 561 – 3474 ext. 221
