The Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act requires members of the Scientific and Statistical Committee to disclose any financial interest in harvesting, processing, lobbying, advocacy, or marketing activity that is being, or will be, undertaken within any Council-managed fishery. SSC members are required to file a Statement of Financial Interest form (NOAA Form 88-195) each year and any time there is a significant change in their financial interests. The purpose of filing this statement is to assist the member in avoiding conflicts of interest between official duties and private financial interests or affiliations.
