The North of Smokey Fishermen’s Association (NOSFA) is a registered, incorporated society under the Registry of Joint Stock Companies in Nova Scotia. We have a duly elected Board of Directors with representation from the various harbours along our coastline. The NOSFA is also a provincially accredited organization that has been representing < 45ft competitive, multispecies fish harvesters in both the Scotia-Fundy (Cape Breton) and Gulf regions of Nova Scotia since 1993. Our organization is unique in that it is the only organization in Cape Breton that represents fish harvesters interests in both the Gulf and Scotia-Fundy regions.
Our multi-region representation is reflective of the fact that all of our members are licensed to fish either in the Gulf or Scotia-Fundy areas and regularly carry out their harvesting activities in both regions. Our members hold a variety of licenses including, snow crab, lobster, groundfish, tuna, mackerel, herring, swordfish, etc.
