The Calvert County Watermen's Association was established in 1975 as a non-profit organization. The goal of the Calvert County Watermen's Association is to improve water quality to ensure future harvest of seafood. Our Association consists of local commercial watermen (full-time and part-time) who make their living harvesting seafood from local waterways.  Within our website you'll have an opportunity to learn more about our Association, the events in which we participate or organize, our interactions with the community and our relationships with businesses.
