The CFA is a politically independent professional association. Its membership is across all facets of the wild catch fishing sector. The CFA plays a key role as a major contributor to the formulation of effective and responsible fisheries policies. The practical significance of CFA’s involvement in fisheries management and research development processes is a long term improvement to the efficiency, productivity and profitability of Australia’s wild catch fisheries. This leads to a better managed and strengthened wild catch fishery and operating environment, for CFA’s members. The CFA Board and staff bring a wide range of knowledge and experience from across a diverse fishing industry and association management.
