Cape Cod Commercial Fishermen's Alliance


Organizations and Non-Profits

About Us

Formed in 1991 by a group of fishermen, the Cape Cod Commercial Fishermen’s Alliance has been working with fishermen for more than 30 years to create solutions for both a balanced ecosystem and profitable fishing communities. We are now a nationally recognized nonprofit organization and the leading voice for commercial fishermen on Cape Cod.

The Cape Cod Commercial Fishermen’s Alliance is fishermen, community members, public officials and scientists working together to build creative strategies, advocate for improved marine policies, protect the ocean ecosystem, and ensure the viability and future of Cape Cod’s fisheries.

We believe that a healthy marine environment is essential to the success of Cape Cod’s fishing economy, and we know that better ways to manage our fisheries are needed to protect them. We are taking action now to make sure there will be a future for fish and fishermen by:

-Working towards a healthy ocean environment with sustainable fishing practices.
-Supporting the small boat independent fishing fleet by making sure they have a voice at the local, state, and federal level.
-Engaging in fishermen-driven science and research to inform sensible and forward-looking fishing regulations.
-Investing in fisheries to provide opportunities for today’s fishermen, and future generations, to build successful businesses.
-Connecting the community to commercial fishermen to educate consumers on the history of the industry, the current challenges they face, and to create a connection to the food on their plates.
