Nominations sought for North Pacific Research Board

Washington state is seeking nominations for three seats on the North Pacific Research Board (NPRB).

The 20-member board, established by Congress in 1997, makes recommendations to the U. S. Secretary of Commerce on funding for research projects related to fisheries or marine ecosystems in the North Pacific Ocean, Bering Sea and Arctic Ocean. The NPRB supports wide-ranging research on North Pacific, Bering Sea and Arctic Ocean ecosystems, to enable effective management and sustainable use of marine resources.

Since 2002, the board has made recommendations resulting in almost $34 million in marine research funding. Federal legislation provides that Washington state’s three board members be nominated by the governor to serve three-year terms. Nominees are selected for their education, training or experience related to fisheries or marine ecosystems in the North Pacific, Bering Sea or Arctic Ocean. Terms of the state’s current members expire Jan. 31, although they are eligible for re-nomination to the board.

Qualified applicants should send a description of their interest and qualifications by mail to Ami Hollingsworth, Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, 600 Capitol Way N., Olympia, Wash., 98501-1091, or by email to Ami.Hollingsworth@dfw.wa.gov

The deadline for applications is Sept. 20.
