Happy to announce today that the Seaport Economic Council awarded the Fishing Partnership, a non-profit organization dedicated to improvements in the health, safety and economic security of commercial fishermen and their families, a substantial state grant for their continued work.
You don't have to live in a coastal community to know that commercial fishermen are continuing to work hard to harvest and deliver nutritious food throughout this time of pandemic. They are truly essential workers.

Founded in 1997, the Fishing Partnership works to provide critical support services and programs to more than 20,000 New England fishing families. The Seaport Economic Council is state-created capital grant program that supports working waterfronts, local tourism, coastal resiliency, and maritime innovation in all 78 coastal communities.
