Habitat Activities

The Commission's Habitat Subcommittee is composed of two representatives from each Gulf state along with members from the National Marine Fisheries Service and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. The Habitat Subcommittee works closely with the Interjurisdictional Fisheries Program in the review, updating, and formulation of the habitat sections of the Commission's Fishery Management Plans.
