Wanna be on the IPHC?

The government today published this Federal Register notice inviting nominations for people to serve on the International Pacific Halibut Commission.

The IPHC, as I'm sure you know, is a fishery management panel with three members from the United States and three from Canada.

The Department of Commerce is seeking nominations for two U.S. seats now occupied by Ralph Hoard and Phillip Lestenkof. Both are eligible for reappointment.

Hoard is a longtime IPHC member and, if I'm not mistaken, a now retired Icicle Seafoods executive. Lestenkof is president of Central Bering Sea Fishermen's Association.

Maybe you'd like to relieve one of these guys on the IPHC?

Read the notice for details on the nomination process and deadline.
