Council Staff

The council staff supports the fishery management decision-making process. It coordinates meetings and provides information to the Council, its advisory groups, fishermen and the public.  The Council’s executive director carries out the tasks assigned by the Council and, with the senior scientists and program officer, directs and oversees the technical and support staff. The technical staff analyzes alternatives for regulatory change for the Council’s review, with a focus on biology, economics, and social science, ecosystems and habitat. The technical staff also develops fishery management documents and regulations based on the Council’s decisions.
