Reseach Advisory Board
Research Advisory Board
The Research Advisory Board (RAB) was formed in 2000 to provide the Commission staff with
insight on issues of concern to the halibut industry. The Board meets annually with the Executive Director
and staff and is composed of active members of the fishing community who are interested in contributing
to the direction of IPHC research. A report of the proceedings and recommendations is presented to
Commissioners and becomes part of the research discussion at the Interim and Annual Meetings.
