NOAA seeks applicants for marine sanctuaries councils

The NOAA Office of National Marine Sanctuaries is seeking advisory council applicants.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Office of National Marine Sanctuaries is seeking advisory council applicants for eight of its national marine sanctuaries.

These are community-based groups whose insight guides management decisions and community relations for each sanctuary site.

Candidates are selected based on expertise and experience in relation to the particular role for which they are applying, as well as relevant community or professional affiliations.

Applications are being accepted through Nov. 30, according to the National Marine Manufacturers Association.

The eight national marine sanctuaries in need of council members are in Hawaii (Northwestern Hawaiian Islands Coral Reef Ecosystem Reserve); Washington (Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary); Massachusetts (Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary); Samoa (National Marine Sanctuary of American Samoa); California (Greater Farallones National Marine Sanctuary); Georgia (Gray’s Reef National Marine Sanctuary); Hawaii (Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary); and North Carolina (Monitor National Marine Sanctuary).

Applicants chosen as members or alternates should expect to serve two- or three-year terms, pursuant to the charter of the specific national marine sanctuary advisory council.

The most recently expanded national marine sanctuaries have continued to be open to recreational fishing.
