BCYF NETWORK

What is the BCYFN?

BC Young Fishermen's Network (BCYFN) is a network for emerging commercial fishermen. The network provides a supportive environment to foster learning, networking and growth in the next generation of BC’s fishing fleet. We create connections- linking young fishermen to the people and resources they need to plan successful business and engage in their communities. 


Why Young Fishermen?
We believe educating and empowering emerging fishermen will help keep BC's coastal communities thriving, and maintain our centuries-old connection to the ocean.
