About The Southern Fishermen AssociationThe Southern Fishermen Association an organization formed in 1993 to give representation to the to the local fishermen of Grand Mal, St. George’s, Grenada.
The formation of this body came about because of an incident when a local fisherman unfortunately lost his life at sea. His comrades realizing for the first time how venerable they were not having any social security programme in place to meet the immediate and long term need of their loved ones if indeed an incident should occur. This unfortunate incident revealed to us the venerability and perishable nature of the persons choosing to become involved in the occupation of fishing.
(recognized by the United Nation and most recently by the United States of America, as one of the most dangerous occupation on earth).
