The committee will address and discuss issues related to invasive catfish and send recommendations to both the Tidal Fisheries Advisory Commission and Sport Fisheries Advisory Commission. The primary goal of the committee is to advise both commissions on ways to best implement and support departmental priorities to control and mitigate damages associated with invasive catfish. Membership will be composed of a diverse group of stakeholders, primarily those affected by the spread of invasive catfishes in the state. Members will be required to prepare for and attend at least three of four quarterly meetings (held virtually or hybrid) where they will provide advice (including that of stakeholders they may represent), and be prepared to provide agenda ideas to the committee administrator. 

Anyone interested in serving on the committee is required to apply online. Applications must be submitted by May 31, 2024 for consideration.  For questions, please contact Chris Jones at [email protected] or 410-991-9541.
