Fishermen’s Association of the Maldives
MFA was established in 8 April 1993 as an organization aimed to develop the Maldivian fishing industry by educating, providing incentives, facilitating market options, gather and disseminate information about new technologies to the local fishers in Maldives.
The Association works alongside fishermen to encourage growth and develop a sustainable fishing industry in Maldives. MFA gives priority to preserve indigenous knowledge, create awareness and understanding about fishery by hosting workshops within the country. Such workshops are designed to educate, help acquire skills, facilitate alternative methods like aqua/marine culture and introduce advancements in fisheries for fishermen.
