WDFW Seeks Nominations For Steelhead And Cutthroat Policy Advisory Group
OLYMPIA — The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) is seeking nominations to a citizen advisory group that advises the department on steelhead and anadromous cutthroat management issues.
The department will select as many as 15 individuals to serve two-year terms on the Steelhead/Cutthroat Policy Advisory Group, with new terms beginning in January 2015. Advisors provide guidance to WDFW on a range of issues related to management of steelhead and cutthroat. Advisors also serve as an important communication link between the department and its constituents.
Advisors should have a broad statewide interest in steelhead and cutthroat. They must effectively communicate with large segments of the public and clearly articulate their ideas and guidance to fishery managers within the department. The advisory group will meet approximately four times each year and advisors are asked to provide comment on written material throughout the year.
Current members of the advisory group are encouraged to reapply. WDFW is also looking for new candidates with varied backgrounds who can effectively present their views on steelhead and anadromous cutthroat management to WDFW and the public.
