Reminder! MAFMC Advisory Panel Applications Due April 20

The Mid-Atlantic Fishery Management Council is soliciting applications from qualified individuals to serve on eight advisory panels. Advisory panels provide information and recommendations to the Council during the development of fishery management plans, amendments, specifications, and management measures. One of the chief responsibilities of advisory panels is the development of annual Fishery Performance Reports. These reports provide the Council and SSC with information about the factors that influenced fishing effort and catch within each fishery during the previous year.

Advisory panels are composed of individuals with diverse experience and interest in Mid-Atlantic fisheries. Members include commercial fishermen, recreational anglers, for-hire operators, dealers, scientists, environmentalists, and other members of the interested public. Most advisory panels meet 1-2 times per year. Members are compensated for travel and per diem expenses for all meetings. Individuals who are appointed to advisory panels serve for three-year terms. All current advisory panel members must reapply in order to be considered for reappointment.

The Council is accepting applications for the following advisory panels:

Summer Flounder, Scup, and Black Sea Bass
Mackerel, Squid, and Butterfish
Surfclam and Ocean Quahog
Tilefish
Bluefish
Ecosystem and Ocean Planning
River Herring and Shad
Dogfish (Jointly managed with New England Council)

How to Apply

Anyone interested in serving on an advisory panel may apply online or download an application at www.mafmc.org/forms/advisory-panel-application.

Completed applications must be received by Friday, April 20, 2018, 11:59 p.m. EST.

If you have questions or need additional information, please contact Mary Sabo at (302) 518-1143, msabo@mafmc.org.
