The Jamaica Fishermen Co-operative Union, (JFCU), formerly known as the Jamaica Co-operative Union, started in 1942.
The JFCU serves as an umbrella organisation for all co-operatives in Jamaica. We offer a range of services to our members and other licensed fishermen.
We provide a variety of products that include fishing equipment such as mesh wires, baits, netting, fibre-glass materials, marine ply, lines, and safety and diving equipment.
Our services include boat building under the trade name "JACO CRAFT".
The JFCU is a secondary co-operative society with membership of nine primary fishermen cooperatives and several hundred individual fishermen. The combined membership in the JFCU from these two sources is about 4,000.
The JFCU now provides a range of services to its members and other licensed fishermen.
It is a major supplier of a wide range of commercial fishing equipment to fishermen in the island and is managed by a nine-man board representing member societies.
