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.
