Nederlandse Vissersbond

Dutch fishermen's union

The interest group for professional fishermen in the Netherlands.

Main activities

The Nederlandse Vissersbond represents the interests of fishermen at local, national and international level and informs fishermen about important matters. The landing obligation, the total ban on pulse fishing, Brexit and spatial planning at sea are examples in which the Dutch Fisheries Association is committed to defending the right to exist and the future of fishing.

The Nederlandse Vissersbond also relieves its members in applying for permits, organizing crew papers, innovating the fleet, renting or leasing quotas and increasing safety on board.
