The South Atlantic Fishermen's Association is made up of members of the fishing community, seafood lovers and concerned citizens from North Carolina to the Florida Keys. We are committed to providing fresh, local, responsibly harvested seafood; improved fisheries science; and strong fishing communities.
“Since catch shares programs have been introduced in our area I’ve seen no downside. I’ve watched the value of the fish we’re bringing in increase by 20-25%. I see fishermen burning less fuel, having more days off, and I see an overall improvement in the quality of life for us all.”
