Executive Director - Jim Johnson
The Deep Sea Fishermen’s Union of the Pacific is the oldest and sole remaining fishers union advocating for fair compensation, safe working conditions and sustainable Halibut and Cod Fisheries in the North Pacific from the Coast of Washington to the Gulf of Alaska, the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands.
As 2017 draws to a close I reflect back on a difficult but productive year. Despite my initial status as a greenhorn, I have managed to solidify a working relationship with other hook and line organizations to the degree that my bid for a seat on the North Pacific Fishery Management Council’s Advisory Panel was a success!
My unique background in both the public and the business sectors of government, transportation and agriculture continues to prove instrumental as I direct the mission, vision and goals of the Deep Sea Fishermen’s Union during these exciting and uncertain times.
We will continue to accomplish much as an organization in the coming year and as Executive Director I remain committed to the interests of the Deep Sea Fishermen’s Union of the Pacific.
