Welcome to the website of the Federation of Commercial Fishermen

The New Zealand Federation of Commercial Fishermen, "The Fed", is a national body that represents the interests of owner-operator commercial fishermen in New Zealand. The Federation represents members' interests at national, regional and local association levels and, where appropriate, on an individual basis. Members have been at the forefront of promoting the 'New Zealandisation' of the New Zealand Fishing Industry and as such they have increasingly invested in larger and more modern vessels which have assisted in providing more jobs for New Zealanders both afloat and ashore.
