Fisheries chief Bill Hogarth has postponed his Thursday meetings with
constituents on Pawley’s Island, S.C., due to concerns about
the effect that Hurricane Isabel may have on those who live and work
on the Atlantic coast.
NOAA Fisheries will reschedule the constituent meetings in the near future, and will notify constituents via a Federal Register notice, through the news media, the Constituent Sessions Web site: http://www.nmfs.noaa.gov/emeetings and through FishNews.
The constituent sessions had been scheduled on Thursday afternoon and evening (Sept. 18) in conjunction with the South Atlantic Fishery Management Council meeting and was one of several meetings that the NOAA Fisheries director has been holding to hear from fishermen and other constituents around the country about fishery management issues.
Constituents are welcome to provide comments on the Constituent Sessions Web site by clicking on the e-comments link, which lists a variety of fisheries issues. You may also contact Gordon Helm at (301) 713-2370, ext. 140 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
