Council Seeks Applicants for Federal Fishery Advisory Panels

Applications due November 6 , 2019

The South Atlantic Fishery Management Council is currently seeking applicants for open seats on its advisory panels. Advisory panel members provide information and guidance in the development and implementation of federal fishery management plans. Members include recreational and commercial fishermen, seafood dealers and processors, industry representatives, scientists, and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) such as environmental groups, fishing organizations, etc.

Advisory panel members are appointed by the Council and serve for a three-year period, based on the frequency of meetings. The advisory panels generally meet no more than once or twice each year and are compensated for travel and per diem expenses for all meetings.

Seats are currently open on the Dolphin Wahoo Advisory Panel, Habitat and Ecosystem-Based Management Advisory Panel, Information & Education Advisory Panel, and the Mackerel Cobia Advisory Panel. Details are available from the News Release.
