Fish business leaders sought for advisory group
The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife is asking for applications through Feb. 14 for a new advisory group to guide the state on increasing participation in Washington’s inland fisheries.
Up to 15 people will be chosen to serve on the Retailers and Manufacturers Advisory Group for 2014 and 2015.
They are looking for residents from businesses with an understanding of recreational fishing for species, such as trout, walleye, and bass, said Chris Donley, inland fish program manager for WDFW.
Donley said. “The goal is to refine our management of inland fisheries to not only attract new people to the sport but also to help ensure we continue to provide sustainable opportunities.”
Applicants should be decision makers at an outdoors-oriented business in Washington – preferably as CEO, general manager, president, or marketing director.
