Advisory CommitteeKingfisher

The WSG Advisory Committee provides general program oversight, direction, and advice. The Committee was established in August 2006 with stakeholders and federal and state partners, as well as two ex-officio members. The committee has expanded in recent years to include a broad reprerentation of stakeholders in our marine community.
