Congratulations to the appointees to the Pacific Fishery Management Council named last week. They include Robert E. (Bob) Dooley, of California; and Christa M. Svensson, of Oregon, who were appointed to obligatory seats. They step into the seats previously held by David Crabbe and Dorothy Lowman, respectively.
Louis H. Zimm of California was appointed to an at-large seat, succeeding Buzz Brizendine, and Philip A. Anderson of Washington was reappointed to an at-large seat.
Service on the Council is time-consuming and requires an enormous amount of study and diligence. We want to express appreciation to Buzz Brizendine, David Crabbe and Dorothy Lowman for everything they’ve contributed to the fisheries of the West Coast. Although the general public is largely unaware of the work that goes on in regional fishery management councils, that work nevertheless contributes to the well-being of countless families and communities.
