Marine Fisheries Meeting Cancelled Due to Lack of Quorum

MOREHEAD CITY – The N.C. Marine Fisheries Commission meeting that was scheduled for this week in Raleigh has been cancelled due to the expected lack of a quorum. The meeting will be rescheduled within 30 days.

Under state law, the Marine Fisheries Commission does not meet requirements for a quorum unless at least six of the nine members are present, including one that holds a commercial fisherman or industry seat and one that holds a recreational fisherman or industry seat. Commission Chairman Rob Bizzell said he was informed shortly after 6 p.m. today that there would be no commissioner representing commercial fishing interests able to attend this week’s planned meeting.

Also under state law, if the commission is unable to transact business because of the above requirement, the chair must call another meeting within 30 days to take up the matters that were on the agenda of the cancelled meeting. Only five commission members holding any of the seats will constitute a quorum for this meeting.

The new meeting date will be announced as soon as it is scheduled.
