Who We Are 

Midwater Trawlers Cooperative (MTC) is a not-for-profit industry trade association established in 1982.  MTC members participate in whiting and groundfish fisheries off the West Coast and pollock, cod and other groundfish fisheries in the Bering Sea and Gulf of Alaska. 

MTC represents the interests of midwater trawl commercial fishing vessels at local, state, regional and national fisheries management venues.  We do this by tracking state and national fisheries policy activities and legislation and through participation in both state and federal fisheries management processes including the North Pacific and Pacific Fishery Management Councils.
