RecFIN Steering Committee

The Steering Committee makes high-level directives at infrequent meetings. The Steering Committee has set the policy that RecFIN is intended to be the repository of all recreational catch and effort estimates and sample data for the states of Washington, Oregon and California. The Steering Committee has also moved to terminate or reduce some data collection surveys while increasing or establishing other surveys.
