NOAA Fisheries is seeking nominations to fill current and pending vacancies on the Marine Fisheries Advisory Committee (MAFAC), which advises the Secretary of Commerce on all living marine resource matters that are the responsibility of the Department of Commerce. The committee draws on its members’ expertise and other sources to evaluate and make recommendations to the Secretary and NOAA on the development and implementation of agency regulations, policies and programs critical to the mission and goals of NOAA Fisheries.
MAFAC members represent a wide spectrum of commercial, recreational, subsistence and aquaculture fisheries interests. Membership is voluntary and the committee functions solely as an advisory body. For more information, contact Jennifer Lukens, Executive Director of MAFAC, email@example.com or Heidi Lovett, firstname.lastname@example.org.
