The RFEG Advisory Board is made up of eight members. The director of the Department of Fish and Wildlife appoints seven members, of which two represent commercial fishing interests, two represent recreational fishing interests, and three are at-large positions. At least two of the advisory board members are required to be members of a regional fisheries enhancement group. The two tribal fisheries commissions also may each nominate one Board member.
The Board, at its quarterly public meetings, reviews RFEG project proposals and makes recommendations to the director for funding approval. The Board operates under a committee structure with representatives from the RFEGs and board members. These committees are: 1) Administration and Finance, 2) Project Review, and 3) RFEG Representative.
