Welcome to OCFA Site  

Welcome to the web site of the Ontario Commercial Fisheries' Association.  The OCFA represents an industry that has been a part of the history, culture and economy of our part of the world for a very long time.  There was a recognizable commercial fishery before Europeans colonized what we now call Ontario.  Fishing was one of the first industries established in new communities that sprang up as Europeans pushed up the Great Lakes in the early years of Canada's founding.

We are proud of our history and proud of our modern role as purveyors of nutritious, wholesome fish products sustainably harvested from Ontario's waters.

 Thank you for celebrating the 75th Anniversary of the OCFA Annual Convention.  Thank you to the sponsors, speakers and participants, you made this year one to remember and enjoy.
