Fishing Partnership Support Services (FP) is a nonprofit company in Massachusetts that has been improving the health, safety, and economic security of fishing families for over 20 years. Food producers, including fishermen, deserve our support. Fishermen are critical to our local economy. For example, seven-thousand Massachusetts fishermen form the foundation of a multi-billion-dollar seafood industry that supports over 90,000 workers. Furthermore, the future looks bright for the industry. The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that the fishing industry will grow by 11% by 2026 - compared to 7% for all occupations.
