Support the MCFA
The issues we face threaten not just our fishing businesses, but also the survival of Maine's working coastal communities. Without the Maine fishermen and the communities they support, we lose an important part of our Maine identity.

To identify solutions to the most pressing problems of today and to preserve the fishing culture in Maine, we need your help. We are at an important juncture in the history of Maine's fishing industry, determining how that industry will endure for generations to come. Your financial support will help give a voice to Maine's small-boat fishermen and make that voice heard throughout New England and across the nation.
