The N.C. Marine Fisheries Commission Nominating Committee will meet next week by webinar to recommend candidates for at-large seats on two fishery management councils.
The committee’s recommendations for the Mid-Atlantic Fishery Management Council and the South Atlantic Fishery Management Council will be forwarded to the Marine Fisheries Commission, a nine-member board appointed by the governor to manage, restore, develop, cultivate, protect and regulate the state’s marine and estuary resources.
The commission does this by adopting rules and policies, implementing management measures for fisheries and advising the State on marine fisheries within the jurisdiction of regional and federal boards and councils.
Members of the public may listen to the meeting set for 1:30 p.m. meet Oct. 16 by phone or listen and view presentations in real-time by joining online. Link to the WebEx Meeting.
Directions for calling in by phone or joining the webinar online, including information on system requirements and testing are available here.
