The North Pacific Fishery Management Council is one of eight regional councils established by the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act in 1976 to manage fisheries in the 200-mile Exclusive Economic Zone. The people serving on the Council or other Council-sponsored groups are made of up appointees from Alaska, Washington, and Oregon. The Council, along with the advisory bodies, were formed so federal fishery management decisions could be made at a local level, emphasizing public input.
The Sundog team was thrilled to participate in working with the NPFMC team to refresh their website, to make accessing information and public participation even more easily accessible and effortless to navigate. Finding information about meetings, researching policies and issues, and a searchable library – along with a quick way to link to the digital Agenda – make this website an elegant and useful tool for anyone interested in participating at any level.
