The members of the Federation are organizations of independent fish harvesters.
To become a member of the Federation an organization must be a legally constituted organization of fish harvesters that is democratically controlled by them. It must have a Constitution and/or By-laws, membership fees and elected officers, and hold periodic membership meetings and/or be recognized under provincial legislation. This includes umbrella groups or federations which encompass more than one fish harvester organization. Organizations in which fish processing companies and/or fish buyers hold membership and are eligible to serve as officers are not eligible to become members of the Federation.
