Industry members who want to serve on one or more of the New England Fishery Management Council’s advisory panels still have time to submit applications.
“Our advisors are important to us,” said NEFMC Executive Director Tom Nies in a press release. “They bring a wide range of experience and perspectives to the table and give us valuable insight into the practical, social, and economic implications of our actions.”
Selected AP members will be appointed to three-year terms running from January 2017 through December 2020.
Seats are available on the Council’s Habitat, Herring, Enforcement, Monkfish, Red Crab, Skate, Scallop, Whiting, and Groundfish APs, as well as the Groundfish Recreational Advisory Panel, commonly referred to as the RAP.
Application forms and additional information are available online.
