The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Office of National Marine Sanctuaries is looking for recreational fishing experts to fill vacant seats on its advisory councils at three national marine sanctuaries.

The positions are available at Flower Garden Banks in the northwestern Gulf of Mexico; Monitor, which is a preservation of a Civil War shipwreck near Cape Hatteras, N.C.; and Stellwagen Bank, an 842-square-mile sanctuary in Massachusetts Bay.

A sanctuary advisory council is a community-based advisory group with representatives from user groups, government agencies and the public at large.

The role of the council is to provide advice to the sanctuary superintendent on the designation and/or operation of a national marine sanctuary, according to the National Marine Manufacturers Association.

Council members include fishers, divers, teachers, boaters, businesspeople, activists, protected area managers, scientists and elected officials. A successful candidate for the positions noted above will advise the sanctuary superintendent on the recreational fishing perspective.

Nominations are due to the appropriate sanctuary council by June 30.
