The ICCAT Commission, entered into force in 1969 after receiving the required number of ratifications, usually holds an Annual Meeting in November of each year, and convenes meetings of its working groups and other subsidiary bodies between annual meetings as needed

Nominations, including a letter of interest and a resume or curriculum vitae, should be sent via email to Bryan Keller ([email protected]) by September 30, 2022.
