Board of Directors

The MCA Board is made up of members representing different segments of the North Pacific and Bering Sea fishing industry. As MCA works on issues that are common to our members, we strive for consensus before taking a position on any policy matters. In the absence of a consensus, our bylaws require a super-majority vote representing 75% of present Board members. Our Board of Directors and members are active in many issues and routinely form sub-committees to guide research or to develop position statements as issues arise.

Our Staff

Lori Swanson, Executive Director: Lori has a Bachelor’s degree in biology from the University of Washington and began work in North Pacific fisheries in 1980, as an Observer on foreign-flagged trawlers. In the 1980’s she worked as a joint-venture fishery representative during the transition from foreign to US fishing, and spent time as a deckhand on US catcher vessels. Lori worked with a trawl gear designer and manufacturer during the 1990’s, developing a vocational program for fishermen and representing the company in international markets. Most recently, Lori spent 15 years at the Groundfish Forum in Seattle, including nine years of service on the North Pacific Fishery Management Council’s Advisory Panel.
