California Department of Fish and Wildlife

Lobster Advisory Committee Application Deadline Extended

April 24, 2012

The California Department of Fish and Wildlife has extended the date to receive applications for the Lobster Advisory Committee to May 11, 2012. The decision to extend the application deadline comes in response to input shared at recent public meetings to introduce the Lobster Fishery Management Plan process. CDFW is especially seeking applicants interested in representing southern California’s non-consumptive recreational public.

The Lobster Advisory Committee has a crucial role in the development of the fishery management plan. The California Department of Fish and Wildlife encourages public feedback and comment, as this will aid in the success of the Lobster Fishery Management Plan.
