Together we stand, Combined we fish! Fishing is our life, our existence, our means to feed our families and our nation, our blood sweat and tears and our story ..

Combined Fishing Enterprises (CFE) was established in 1996 by two brothers from the fourth generation of a family of fishermen, as well as the wife of a life-long fisherman. The company evolved with the South African Commercial fishery (1995). Since its inception, which was shortly before being awarded its first fishing quota, the company has accumulated a wealth of 20 years’ experience in the fishing industry. CFE is managed by the Lucas family, who built upon the company’s strengths both in the general operations of the business and within the South African fishing sectors.

  • CFE is 100% black owned and managed
  • CFE is 100% black staffed
  • CFE has 100% black shareholding directorship
  • CFE voting rights are held by 100% black persons
  • CFE dividends are paid over to 100% black persons
  • CFE is 100% BBBEE compliant with a level 1 rating.
  • CFE enjoys 50% black women ownership


CFE’S goal is to remain a well-respected 100% black-owned member of the fishing industry whilst growing into a sustainable and efficient industrial operation. Through this success we aim to support and uplift the lives of all our stakeholders which include individuals from the previously disadvantaged fishing communities.


Our core mission is to become a profitable and established 100% black-owned fishing entity within the South African fishing industry.
