About Our Logo

The DelMarVa Fisheries Association logo aspires to represent the hard-working men and women of the seafood industry and the optimism in DFA’s mission to defend, protect and enhance the commercial fishing industry in the Delmarva region of the United States for present participants as well as future generations through all legal means - while maintaining healthy and sustainable stocks of fish.   The logo centers on the seafood harvesters, just as the heart of DFA’s purpose is to ensure and enhance the livelihoods of the region’s watermen and their families.  

Our distinctive logo was created by artist/designer Ramon Matheu in 2016.  Read more below to learn about the artist.
