Norges Fiskarlag

The Norwegian Fishermen's Association is the professional fishermens union and business organization. The association is a politically independent, professional national organization based on voluntary membership of fishermen. 

The organization's leader (chairman) has since November 2013 been Kjell Ingebrigtsen. The association is a politically independent, professional national organization based on voluntary membership of fishermen. 

The association organizes boat owners as well as crewmen, such as self-employed fishermen on small fishing vessels, and crew members/crew fishermen on large ocean-going fishing vessels. As such, we are an association for both workers and employers, as well as fishermen in sole proprietorships.

The Norwegian Fishermen's Association is a private tariffs organization, where the differentiated Crew Section and Boat Owner's Section represents the negotiating parties. You will find our suggested employment contract in english version here.

The Norwegian Fishermen's Association is based on memberships in local and regional fishermen's associations, with a total of 110 local chapters, and two semi-independent group organizations. Today, the organization counts approximately 4 300 members from across the country.The organization was founded in 1926.

The main administration for Norwegian Fishermen's Association is located in Trondheim, and the seven regional associations and two group organizations are:


The Norwegian Fishermen's Associations main focus is to safeguard all fishermens best interests in a number of important ways. We work with the main goal to gather the country's fishermen in an organization to achieve unity and strength in our efforts to promote the fishermens professional, economic, social and cultural interests.

Norwegian Fishermen's Association works closely with central and local authorities bringing forward issues on the advice of our members. Because of the fishing industry's major impact on the coast, the Norwegian Fishermen's Association has a central position and great responsibility in terms of activity and settlements in the coastal districts.


The Norwegian Fishermen's Association is an active participant in national and international fisheries management, and contributes actively in setting the agenda for the authorities in negotiations of quotas and trade policies. We are also involved in training of foreign fishermen for everyone to have the same goal and understanding about managing the community in the best way, thus contributing to sustainable fisheries also for the coming generations.

We are an active proponent of environmentally sound fisheries, both in terms of equipment, fuel, methods and efficiency of the fishery.
