What is the BCYFN?

The BC Young Fishermen's Network (BCYFN) is a supportive space for the next generation of BC’s fishing fleet. We foster learning, networking and growth among young fishermen, creating connections to the people and resources they need to succeed.


Why Young Fishermen?
We believe that supporting young fishermen means supporting the health and wellbeing of our coastal communities.
