Fisheries’s Docs Amenda Agenda Polar Shipping and Arctic Development Symposium - Joint Program of MLA/CMI

Dear Fisheries Committee Members – As you know, the MLA Spring Meeting is combined with the annual CMI meeting, and where possible we are holding joint committee meetings.  The Fisheries Committee is participating in the Polar Shipping and Arctic Shipping Symposium which takes place throughout the day on Thursday May 5 at the New York Hilton.  We are fortunate to have as the presenter on fisheries management issues Ambassador David Balton, who led the U.S. Arctic Council Task Force in recent years and has chaired the Arctic fisheries meetings with other Arctic nations.  He will be speaking after lunch at the Symposium at 2 pm.  Of course, all are welcome for the entire symposium.  The full symposium agenda is now posted on our MLA web page, and I look forward to seeing everyone in May.
