PFA members are represented by a team who are happy to talk to you about any industry concerns or issues you may have – or even just a chat. The main focus of the Association is to provide a voice for professional fishers to the Government (Federal, State, Local) and key stakeholder groups including NSW Fisheries, National Parks, Industry Affiliates, media and community groups to name a few.

Membership to the PFA is available to any wild harvest commercial fisher in NSW.
We also offer corporate membership.
