NEWPORT – The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife is accepting nominations for a seat on the Pacific Fishery Management Council to represent Oregon fisheries interests.

The seat is currently held by Frank Warrens and is Oregon’s obligatory seat on the council.

Anyone interested in being considered or wishing to nominate some must contact Cyreis Schmitt at 541-867-4741 or no later than Feb. 6.

The Pacific Fishery Management Council is one of eight regional fishery management councils established by the Magnuson Fishery Conservation and Management Act to manage fisheries from 3 to 200 miles offshore of the United States coastline. The Pacific Council is responsible for fisheries off the coasts of California, Oregon, and Washington.

The ideal candidate for the spot on the council would be knowledgeable regarding the conservation and management of fishery resources off Oregon’s coast. Specific knowledge and experience on management issues and fisheries is also important as well as a strong conservation ethic. They must also work collectively with other council member to make difficult decisions to end overfishing and fulfill the other standards set forth by the Magnuson Act.

ODFW will forward the nomination to the Governor’s office for selection from at least three candidates for National Marine Fisheries and U.S. Department of Commerce consideration. Each nominee will also undergo an extensive background check.
