Executive Committee

The Federation’s governing body is its Executive Committee, which is comprised of two nominees from each of the member producer organisations and regional committees. The Committee elects a chairman from amongst its number, whose term of office is two years. All sub-committees and the Federation’s officers are answerable to the Executive, which meets roughly every six weeks.

Each organisation/regional committee holds two votes but in reality the Committee only very rarely decides policy through vote, preferring to work through consensus, which the whole Federation can then support. Agendas for meetings of the Executive reflect the diversity of the Federation’s membership and the current issues confronting the fishing industry. Most Executive meetings are held in the NFFO’s offices in York but periodically they are held in a fishing port or other venue.
