Welcome to PFA
The Pelagic Freezer-trawler Association (PFA) represents the interests of 9 European pelagic freezer-trawler companies on an international level. At present, the association has members in the UK, Ireland, France, Germany, Lithuania and the Netherlands, all operating freezer-trawlers that catch and process pelagic fish for human consumption.
Our basic aim is a sustainable fishing industry, now and in the future.

To this end, the members of the PFA have established a joint policy in which cooperation and the transfer of knowledge on sustainable fisheries play a central role.
