Your Chance to influnce the Massachusetts Marine Fisheries Commission

Massachusetts's anglers and conservationists have a unique opportunity to influence how marine resources are managed in this state and along the Atlantic Coast. The Massachusetts Marine Fisheries Commission (MFC) has nine members, appointed by the Governor to three year, unpaid terms. Its role is to make recommendations to the Director of Marine Fisheries on critical conservation and resource allocation issues. The commission also approves the appointment of the Director of Marine Fisheries by the Commissioner of Fisheries, Wildlife, and Environmental Law Enforcement.

CCA is supporting two terrific candidates, both of whom have a long and illustrious history of achievement in marine conservation.

Colin "Rip" Cunningham

Former Massachusetts Marine Fisheries Commission member (1986-1997) and past Chairman (1992-1994, 1996-1997);
Coastal Conservation Association member, 1993 - present

New England Fishery Management Council, Billfish Advisory Committee

Atlantic Salmon Federation, Board of Directors

Salt Water Sportsman Magazine, Publisher and Editor-in-Chief

Mark Weissman

Coastal Conservation Association co-founder and member, 1994 - present

Massachusetts Marine Fisheries Commission member, 1993 to present

Pushed through measures that prohibited dragging up to the beach in Nantucket Sound and the Vineyard

Write Governor Celluci today and tell him that Massachusetts's recreational anglers need fair representation on the Massachusetts Marine Fisheries Commission. Urge him to appoint Rip Cunningham and Mark Weissman immediately!
