Who We Are
The UFFCA promotes accountability in the conservation, protection, and sustainable harvest of UFFCA fish populations, as well as the health of the ecosystems upon which they depend.
The UFFCA provides information regarding the state of the UFFCA Fish stocks and fisheries habitat.
The UFFCA promotes and encourages:
- Inclusive and transparent decision making regarding fisheries issues in the UFFCA area.
- Stewardship of fisheries resources and sustainable harvesting practice
- Sustainability in fisheries management and practices
- Cultural values associated with ancient practices
The UFFCA provides advice and support services to UFFCA member communities on a range of issues from conservation and harvest planning and fisheries management, to environmental assessments and field science. The Alliance’s role is to support community based initiatives which support the overall strategic plan.
