MAFAC will advise NOAA and Commerce on short- and long-range strategies for rebuilding and managing the sustained use of living marine resources and recovering and protecting endangered and protected marine species to meet the needs of commercial and recreational fisheries, and environmental, State, consumer, academic, tribal, and other national interests. MAFAC members will help identify common ground on controversial matters of policy and science. The Committee's expertise and diversity are not found in any Commerce component, or in any other Federal Advisory Committee.

The MAFAC will function solely as an advisory body and in compliance with provisions of the Federal Advisory Committee Act. Copies of the charter will be filed with the appropriate Committees of the Congress and with the Library of Congress.
