The Rhode Island Fishermen's Alliance is dedicated to its mission of continuing to help create sustainable fisheries without putting licensed fishermen out of business.
Since its inception, the Rhode Island Fishermen's Alliance has stayed true to its motto "for the people, by the people". Every issue that has confronted Rhode Island's Commercial Fishing Industry has been met head on by the Alliance.
These challenges require a dedicated core of volunteers. The common bond of this group is a shared sense of responsibliity to protect every Rhode Island fishery and every harvester.
Endless hours are spent working with lawmakers and academia to counter attempts made by both state and federal agencies to consolidate or create fishery policies to eliminate licensed fishermen.
Located in Point Judith Rhode Island, The Town Dock is looking to expand our fleet of commercial fishing vessels and we are seeking motivated and dependable self-employed Captains, Mates, and Crewmembers to meet the high demand for fresh seafood.
These are year-round trip vessels that fish anywhere from Virginia to the Canadian line fishing for squid, scup, herring, fluke, whiting, and groundfish. Experience is helpful but not necessary. If you are interested, please send a resume and contact information to firstname.lastname@example.org.
