The Council’s Scientific and Statistical Committee (SSC) is widely recognized as a critical foundation to the North Pacific fisheries management success. The SSC advises the Council on numerous management decisions, including stock assessment and modeling techniques, data collection, ABC recommendations, achievement of rebuilding targets, social and economic impacts of management decisions, protected species interactions, and sustainability of fishing practices. SSC members serve one year terms, and can be federal employees, state employees, academicians, or independent experts not employed by advocacy or interest groups. The Council is looking for a person familiar with the economic analysis and issues usually covered by the council, including catch share programs, development of management systems that are both environmentally and socioeconomically feasible, and multispecies fishery management systems. Interested parties should submit a cover letter and resume, along with a letter of recommendation to the Executive Director, Chris Oliver, by August 15, 2013.
