The BCYFN Annual Gathering

The BC Young Fishermen's Network Gathering is an annual event that brings together commercial fishermen along the West Coast. It serves as a platform for knowledge exchange, networking, and community-building among emerging entrants, seasoned veterans, industry experts, and association representatives. Through workshops, discussions, and interactive sessions, attendees gain valuable insights, share experiences, and explore opportunities in the fishing industry.

The 2024 BCYFN Gathering was a huge success. Thanks to all who came out to learn, network and celebrate fishing on the west coast. Stay tuned for gathering plans for next year.

Stay in Touch with Dock Talk

Nothing beats getting in a room with like-minded folks to learn, share, and raise a glass to the unique experience of those who work on the water. Cultivating relationships and providing networking opportunities is a pillar of our work to foster community and provide supportive connections for BC seafood harvesters. We make these connections happen through gatherings, meetups, and workshops online and in person (whenever possible!!!) Be the first to get info and invites to events in the BC Young Fishermen’s Network community

Showing Up! Making the Network Known

In the name of public visibility, we have been working avidly to get out there and make our presence known in the BC fishing community.

We attend public events and conferences to connect with fishermen, letting them know the support we offer.

We’ve also been getting in front of seafood enthusiasts to share what’s up with local fisheries and why it’s critical to vote with their wallets in support of local sea harvesters.
