NOAA Seeks New Members for Marine Fisheries Advisory Committee

National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Fisheries is seeking nominations to fill vacancies on the Marine Fisheries Advisory Committee (MAFAC). The deadline for nominations is Dec. 24, 2018.

Nomination instructions and guidelines are detailed in the Federal Register and on the web.

MAFAC advises the Commerce Secretary on all living marine resource matters that are the responsibility of the U.S. Department of Commerce. MAFAC draws on its members’ expertise and other sources to evaluate and make recommendations to the secretary and NOAA on the development and implementation of department regulations, policies and programs critical to the mission and goals of the agency. MAFAC members represent a wide spectrum of fisheries, protected resources, and marine habitat interests, including tribal, seafood, environmental, academic, consumer and other related national interests.

Nominees should possess demonstrable expertise in one of these fields and be able to fulfill the time commitments required for two annual meetings and subcommittee work. Individuals serve for a term of three years, and if re-appointed, may serve no more than two consecutive terms.

An MAFAC member cannot be a federal employee, a member of a Regional Fishery Management Council, a registered federal lobbyist or state employee.

Membership is voluntary, and except for reimbursable travel and related expenses, service is without pay. The committee functions solely as an advisory body (complying fully with the Federal Advisory Committee Act) that reports to the secretary.

For more information, please contact Jennifer Lukens or Heidi Lovett.
