The original and only fishermen’s union

The Deep Sea Fishermen’s Union of the Pacific remains what it has always been: a consistent and steadfast advocate for the crewmen at the heart of the North Pacific.

Our negotiated compensation and strong partnership with our employers is often emulated but only realized with the Deep Sea Fishermen's Union.

We are a trade guild of like-minded professionals providing what we can for fishermen and their families - as a traditional fishing community for over 100 years!


We are a labor union that represents the interests of commercial longline Halibut and Sablefish fishermen.

We promote public policy from the fixed gear fishermen points of view as we seek to facilitate the intelligent, orderly and sustainable harvest of Halibut, Sablefish, and other ground fish in the North Pacific.

We work to drive the reduction and proper release of incidental catch of non-target species. We support research and public education on the marine environment and in other areas.

We stand for fixed gear fishermen’s interests in matters concerning wages, hours and working conditions.
