For over 82 years Cordova District Fishermen United has been dedicated to protecting, promoting and perpetuating our commercial fishing industry in Area E waters. It is our mission to serve and protect these our regions fisheries, which is accomplished through countless hours of volunteer service and contributions from fishermen and business owners of the Prince William Sound that are impacted by the health of our fishing industry.
Memberships to CDFU help us meet the costs associated with running our organization, fund our many programs and the Fishermen's memorial Fund. As a Non-Profit organization, we rely on memberships by individuals and businesses to continue the tradition of local support and advocacy to promote the preservation of our fisheries. CDFU is constantly involved in projects that benefit our entire community, Most notably our Buoy Fund project which establishes the "race track markers" every year to provide safe navigation to all vessels. Business and Processor memberships have the option to donate to projects like the buoy fund in addition to the level of membership chosen. All membership dues are tax deductible and CDFU will send out a letter at the end of the year for your records.
Businesses that join will be acknowledged on our website, in membership newsletters, and whenever possible through our social media outlets. Business members are encouraged to attend our Annual membership picnic and end of season party to meet our board and the general membership. Additionally CDFU provides you with our monthly newsletters, action alerts and important topics that affect local businesses.
We believe that continued contributions to our organization from businesses like yours will ensure our fishery stays strong well into the future.
