WASHINGTON, D.C.— The U.S. Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation’s Subcommittee on Oceans, Atmosphere, Fisheries, and Coast Guard will hold a hearing on Thursday, February 27, 2014 at 10:30 a.m. titled, “North Pacific Perspectives on Magnuson-Stevens Act Reauthorization”. This hearing is the fourth in a series of regionally-focused hearings regarding the upcoming reauthorization of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act. The hearing will examine progress made to-date, and the ongoing challenges faced in sustainable fisheries management in the North Pacific, since the Act was last reauthorized in 2007. Testimony from managers, fishermen, academics, and other stakeholders is expected to address impacts of the most recent reauthorization on U.S. fisheries, and the communities that rely on them, and explore potential legislative changes to the law.
