Golden Crab Advisory Panel

The Golden Crab Advisory Panel (GC AP)’s role is to advise the Council on the golden crab fishery. The GC AP provides practical insight into this fishery as well as input on proposed management measures and other Council initiatives. Additionally, the GC AP connects the Council to other fishing stakeholders to promote communication between the Council and fishing communities.  

The GC AP is comprised of representatives from the commercial industry and other individuals familiar with the topic of fisheries and management. Members of the GC AP are appointed by the Council.  

The GC AP meets as needed via webinar or in person.
