Advocating for fixed-gear Halibut and Sablefish fishermen at the heart of the North Pacific

From the near halcyon waters off the California Coast all the way to the tempestuous waters of the Bering Sea, the Deep Sea Fishermen’s Union is not only the oldest, but the sole independent fishmen union in the United States.  We continue to work tirelessly, advocating for fair wages, safe working conditions, and fisheries sustainability for our crewmen and skippers of the fixed-gear Sablefish and Pacific Halibut fisheries.
