Since 1973, the Maryland Watermen’s Association has tirelessly served the interests of watermen and the seafood industry throughout the state of Maryland. We have continuously worked to ensure the future of independent watermen and seafood businesses throughout the state. That hard work has given the MWA, its staff and leadership a strong position and high visibility with State and Federal regulators, as well as, environmental and business associations and organizations.
