|Nominations Sought for Recreational Abalone Advisory Committee|
Posted by CDFW News Release on February 03, 2016 at 13:05:43:|
The California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) is requesting nominations to fill two vacant representative positions on the Recreational Abalone Advisory Committee (RAAC).
The purpose of the RAAC is to make recommendations to CDFW's Director for projects and budgets for the expenditure of funds from the Abalone Restoration and Preservation Account.
The RAAC consists of nine members: two representatives from each of three California coastal regions (south, central and north), two science experts and one enforcement representative.
Nominations may come from any individual or member of an organization involved in the recreational abalone fishery. To nominate a representative for either of these two seats, please send a nomination letter to:
Ian Taniguchi, Marine Region Senior Abalone Scientist
Letters may also be sent via email. Nomination letters should include the nominee's current residence and contact information, as well as a brief description of the nominee's experience in the abalone fishery.
Funding for the Abalone Restoration and Preservation Account comes from the sale of recreational abalone stamps and report cards. More details about abalone management and the RAAC can be found on the CDFW website.
