Puget Sound Recreational Fisheries Enhancement Fund Oversight Committee

The Puget Sound Recreational Fisheries Enhancement Fund (PSRFEF) Oversight Committee was created in 2003 by the legislature.  The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) selected 7-10 individuals to serve on the Puget Sound Recreational Fisheries Enhancement Fund Oversight Committee.  The first meeting was conducted on October 9, 2003.

The Puget Sound recreational fisheries enhancement oversight committee has the following duties:

  1. Advise the department on all aspects of the Puget Sound recreational fisheries enhancement program;
  2. Review and provide guidance on the annual budget for the recreational fisheries enhancement account;
  3. Select a chair of the committee. It is the chair's duty to coordinate with the department on all issues related to the Puget Sound recreational fisheries enhancement program;
  4. Meet at least quarterly with the department's coordinator of the Puget Sound recreational fisheries enhancement program;
  5. Review and comment on program documents and proposed production of salmon and other species; and
  6. Address other issues related to the purposes of the Puget Sound recreational fisheries enhancement program that are of interest to recreational fishers in Puget Sound.

This advisory committee will not create rules or policies; but will provide insight and recommendations to the Director and the Assistant Director, Fish Program.

Members of the advisory group are expected to meet at least quarterly, and may be asked to comment on written materials throughout their two-year term, which ends in December 2012.  Although WDFW is not currently seeking applications for nominations, near t the conclusion of the two-year terms, WDFW will solicit nominations from individuals that are interested in serving on the Puget Sound Recreational Fisheries Enhancement Fund Oversight Committee.
