Criteria for membership

West Wales Shellfishermans Association ltd (WWSFA ltd) will only accept membership from owners of Welsh registered and licensed commercial fishing vessels, which fish along the west coast of Wales.
(exceptions to this rule at the discretion of WWSFA ltd directors)

Why Join

WWSFA ltd is run by fishermen for fishermen with the main aims, to provide fishermen with as much information concerning policy and grant opportunities as possible whilst representing the interest of the fishermen and the fisheries its members are involved in, with the association being built on strong values of stakeholder involvement, and a strict bottom up approach insuring every fisherman has the opportunity to have their voice heard at the highest level.

All directors’ work totally selflessly for the WWSFA ltd and the Welsh fishing industry, with the only reward being in the interest of the fishing industry.


Annual subscriptions are paid by way of a “standing order” for £1 for each calendar month.

Membership can be in multiple names, but will only be counted as a single membership for each vessel.

To join simply down load the membership and standing order forms, present the standing order form to your bank or building society and return the membership form to :-
