Commercial Fishing & Processing

Outcome: New Bedford harvests and processes more fish and derives more dollar-value from the resource.

The NBOC will convene a network of commercial fishermen, processors, regulators, academics and other businesses to derive more value from the seafood we land and process in the region.

NBOC will work with our own companies to try to elevate business through our network locally, regionally and globally.

NBOC will engage with ocean clusters and companies around the world to understand and adopt best practices that will allow our fishermen and processors to optimize their businesses.
