Recreational Crab and Shrimp Advisory Committee seeks volunteers

Posted

Volunteers are needed for a citizen committee that will advise the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife on Puget Sound recreational crab and shrimp fishing issues.

Applications are being accepted for appointments to the Recreational Crab and Shrimp Advisory Committee.

Committee members provide insight, recommendations and advice to the Puget Sound crustacean program staff at the agency regarding potential management actions, harvest seasons, regulations, education and outreach opportunities and stakeholder communication.

Applicants need not be affiliated with an organized group. Anyone can apply for the committee. Advisors will be chosen based on experience in the recreational crab and shrimp fishery, ability to address issues in a thoughtful and productive manner, willingness to engage, their ability to communicate with fishery managers and others, and for their ability to contribute diverse perspectives.

Those interested should review the WDFW Recreational Crab and Shrimp Advisory Committee webpage and the advisory group handbook.

Applications are due by 5 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 20. An online application form with requested information is located on the Crab and Shrimp advisory webpage.
