A new coalition of U.S fishing communities has been organized. The National Coalition of Fishing Communities (NCFC) will formally launch during the next U.S. Conference of Mayors meeting, to be held in Washington, DC on January 19, 2016.
NCFC members include:
- municipalities with economic, social, and cultural ties to the fishing
- associations who represent and are supported
directly by working commercial fishing families
- businesses who are
involved in the harvesting, processing, distributing, marketing, and
serving of seafood
- individuals in fishing communities
NCFC is currently engaged in a membership drive. Members can
join at the NCFC website, fisheriescoalition.org.
