The Cape Cod Commercial Fishermen's Alliance engages our local fishing community in building lasting solutions to protect our ecosystem and the future of our fishing businesses. Founded in 1991 by the local fishing fleet, we are now a nationally-recognized nonprofit organization and the leading voice for commercial fishermen on Cape Cod. 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 future generations of fish and fishermen
