Request for Nominations: Scientific and Statistical Committee At-Large Seat

The Pacific Fishery Management Council is requesting nominations of qualified candidates to fill a vacant At-Large seat on its Scientific and Statistical Committee (SSC) for the 2016-2018 advisory body term.

The Council relies on its SSC for independent, objective advice and analysis about verifiable scientific evidence and theoretical methodologies regarding west coast fishery management approaches and practices. The successful candidate should have knowledge of west coast fisheries and strong scientific expertise in statistics, biology, ecosystem dynamics, economics, fisheries management, population dynamics, fishery-related social science, or other related fields. At this time the Council is particularly interested in candidates experienced in stock assessment.

To ensure consideration, nominations should be received at the Council office no later than 5 p.m. Pacific Time, Tuesday, August 15, 2017.
