Established


Cordova District Fishermen United was established in 1935 as a union that negotiated salmon, clam and dungeness prices, as well as wages and working conditions for cannery workers and fishermen.

Times have changed. We have evolved through the ebbs and flows.
But 83 years later, we're still here.
After all these years, we're still fighting for Area E.

Access


Our structure is divisional, enabling each gear group to deal with gear-specific and allocative issues without comprising the function of the entire organization to address issues relevant to all commercial fishermen. The Board of Directors are experienced commercial fishermen with permits in some or all of the five divisions:
Gillnet, Groundfish, Seine, Herring, and Shefllfish (New in 2018).
