How We’re Helping
The Board of Directors of the Florida Keys Commercial Fishermen’s Association (FKCFA) and our members are confident about the future of Monroe County’s marine resources and our industry continues to participate in cooperative research efforts to maintain and improve them. From a management perspective, we can assure the public that the county has a growing and sustainable seafood industry.
The commercial fleet supports over 1,600 families, which is close to 5 percent of the county’s population. Stock Island alone lands 7 million pounds with a dockside value of $24 million — that’s 5 percent of Florida’s total landings and 13 percent of total value. Our organization’s members are the future policy shapers for the industry.
Whether you help through monetary donations, volunteering your time, or spreading our mission through word-of-mouth, thank you. We couldn’t accomplish our goals without the help of supporters like you.
