Marine Resources Advisory Council Meeting
May 17 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
The Marine Resources Advisory Council (MRAC) was established by state law in 1987 to review proposed regulations for management of marine fisheries and to make recommendations on plans, policies, and programs affecting marine fisheries and on other issues affecting he protection and utilization of New York’s valuable finfish and shellfish resources.
The Council’s membership consists of fifteen members: seven representatives from both the state’s commercial and recreational fishing industries, and the Dean of the School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences (SoMAS), (formerly the Marine Sciences Research Center, MSRC) at Stony Brook University, or his designee, as chair. The Council is presently chaired by Dr. Michael Frisk, Director of the Living Marine Resources Institute. Members serve for three years.
MRAC meets 6 to 8 times per year, usually at the Division of Marine Resources headquarters. The meetings are open to the public, and members of the public may address the Council on marine resources issues.
