We believe in community-focused and stewardship-driven solutions that will shape the future of fisheries in Maine and beyond.
MCFA works with policymakers at the local, state, regional, and federal levels, including those at the Maine Department of Marine Resources, New England Fisheries Management Council, Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission, and of course our elected state and federal representatives. MCFA recognizes that fishermen are the experts, and our goal is to make sure their voices are heard. With fishermen taking the lead, we advocate for policies that work for Maine.
This is the work we were founded to do!
