The following is a news release issued by the Atlantic
States Marine Fisheries Commission:

Non-Traditional Stakeholders Sought for Participation in ASMFC Coastal
Sharks Advisory Panel

Washington, DC - The Commission's Spiny Dogfish and Coastal Sharks
Management Board is in the process of establishing a Coastal Sharks
Advisory Panel. As part of that process, the Board is seeking
nominations from non-traditional stakeholders to fill two seats on the
Advisory Panel. Examples of such stakeholders include, but are not
limited to, non-governmental organizations, grassroots organizations,
and individuals/groups with an interest in coastal shark conservation.

The intent of this action is to broaden the scope of public input to
the Spiny Dogfish and Coastal Sharks Management Board as it develops an
Interstate Fishery Management Plan for Coastal Sharks. The Commission
believes that input from non-traditional stakeholders will strengthen
its efforts in successfully managing coastal sharks. Individuals
interested in serving as advisors can obtain an advisory panel
nomination form by contacting the Commission at (202)289-6400 or
downloading the nomination form via the Commission's website at
http://www.asmfc.org/ad_panel.htm. A completed nomination form must
be submitted to the Commission by 5:00 PM on February 16, 2006.

The Commission's advisory panel process was established in 1994 to
address its increasing responsibilities under the Atlantic Coastal
Fisheries Cooperative Management Act. The Act mandates, among other
considerations, that the Commission provide adequate public
participation in its fishery management planning process, including at
least four public hearings and
procedures for submission of written comments to the Commission. In
2002 the Commission established the Advisory Panel Oversight Committee,
comprised of a subset of legislative and governor-appointed
Commissioners and Advisory Panel Chairs, to provide oversight to its
advisory panel process. Advisory Panels have been developed for Atlantic
croaker, Atlantic herring, Atlantic menhaden, American eel, American
lobster, black sea bass, bluefish, horseshoe crab, northern shrimp, red
drum, scup, shad & river herring, spiny dogfish, striped bass, summer
flounder, tautog, weakfish, and winter flounder.

For more information, please contact Tina Berger, Public Affairs
Specialist, at 202-289-6400 or [email protected].
