Marine Fisheries Advisory Committee Reports and Recommendations

MAFAC activities and advice provide necessary input to ensure that NOAA’s policies, programs, and activities are optimal for supporting sustainable fisheries and fishing communities and recovering and conserving protected species. MAFAC advice is developed during meetings of the Committee and is typically conveyed in meeting summaries, written findings and recommendations, and formal reports. MAFAC assists NOAA in maintaining a complete and accurate understanding of issues critical to the agency's missions.
