The NMMA said NOAA and the Department of the Interior are seeking nominations for 10 new Marine Protected Areas Federal Advisory Committee members to represent diverse ocean interests.

The National Marine Manufacturers Association said the committee advises the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the Interior Department on the country’s system of Marine Protected Areas, which are areas of the oceans or Great Lakes that are protected for a conservation purpose.

It includes representatives of diverse stakeholder groups, including scientists, academia, commercial fishermen, anglers, divers, state and tribal resource managers, the energy and tourism industries and environmentalists.
