Welcome to the Shetland Fishermen website
Shetland Fishermen is the collective term used for the Shetland Fishermen’s Association (SFA) and the Shetland Fish Producers’ Organisation (SFPO).
Based at the Shetland Seafood Centre in Lerwick’s Stewart Building, the two organisations have very different remits. But they share offices and together deal with all aspects of the fishing industry on behalf of their individual members.
