External Affairs Committee

The External Affairs Committee deals with matters that will enhance the visibility of the Society to the media and general public and increase the Society’s interaction with the sport fishing, commercial fishing, aquaculture, processor, and distributor segments of the fisheries community. In addition, the Committee is to promote activism for aquatic habitat and water quality issues.
