Task Force advice will support and contribute to the development of an Agency roadmap to advance and guide implementation, where appropriate, of electronic data collection in private recreational fisheries (both shore and boat mode angling). The initial actions for consideration by the Task Force include: • Identify and prioritize known data gaps relative to NOAA Fisheries’ role in supporting management of marine recreational fisheries that could be addressed through mandatory or voluntary private recreational angler electronic reporting programs. • Identify realistic and achievable goals for voluntary (also known as optin) and mandatory electronic reporting for private recreational anglers, as well as associated challenges and solutions, where identifiable. • Provide recommendations on how the aforementioned goals could be best supported or achieved by NOAA Fisheries. The Task Force will report to MAFAC and will not provide advice or work products directly to NMFS. Recommendations generated by this Task Force’s efforts will not result in any regulatory decision, or obligate any party to undertake certain activities. This Task Force will consist of approximately 10 individuals who have demonstrated subject matter expertise and experience in one or more relevant fields including, but not limited to, sampling statistics, survey methodologies, citizen science, fishery stock assessment science, electronic monitoring or reporting, fisheries management, database development and/or management, mobile technology applications (apps), and marine recreational fishing. It is not intended that all Task Force members be scientists or researchers; however, other members should have experience with issues related to the generation, delivery, and or use of opt-in electronic data, public attitudes about participating in such programs, or similar ecological self-reporting data systems from which parallels can be drawn. In addition to external members, at least one member of MAFAC will serve on the Task Force. It is intended that the Task Force membership represent a diversity of the overall expertise and experience being sought. It will be established for an initial period of two (2) years with a possibility of extending that term if deemed necessary by NMFS and MAFAC. Task Force members should be able to fulfill the time commitments required for up to one meeting per VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:50 Nov 19, 2019 Jkt 250001 month (mostly by webinar or teleconference and potentially inperson), and interim work as necessary.
