NAAFE is an international group of industry, government and academic practitioners of fisheries economics. The purposes of NAAFE are to facilitate communication among North American fisheries and aquaculture economists in industry, academia, government and other areas, to promote dialogue between economists and others interested in fisheries and aquaculture, and to advance fisheries and aquaculture economics and its useful applications.

If you are interested in fisheries management, aquaculture, other marine resources, the seafood industry, domestic or international trade in seafood, or related issues, we encourage you to join NAAFE.


NAAFE is associated with the Marine Resource Economics journal. View our Memorandum of Understanding. Visit MRE's website for more information on how to subscribe.
