U.S. Advisors

The Great Lakes Fisheries Act of 1956 authorized the appointment of advisors to the U.S. Section of the commission "to examine and be heard on all proposed recommendations, programs, and activities relating to [the lake they represent]." The U.S. Section appoints advisors from each lake from a list provided by the Great Lakes state governors. Consideration is given to interests of state agencies, the commercial fish industry, sport fishermen, and the public-at-large.
