Young Fishing Fellows Program

The Young Fishing Fellows Program works with community-based partner organizations to design projects that provide young fishermen with valuable learning, leadership and career-building opportunities. The program matches the goals and needs of young fishermen today with host organizations engaged in work ranging from fishery management and policy to seafood business and marketing, fisheries and ocean sciences and fishing community sustainability. 

Each fellowship is structured to provide opportunity, experience and support to young fishing leaders through mentorship, professional development and hands-on learning.
