American Fisheries Advisory Committee Act
(Sec. 2) This bill amends the Saltonstall-Kennedy Act to direct the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to establish the American Fisheries Advisory Committee.
NOAA must establish six regions within the committee. The committee must consist of members chosen regionally and across all sectors of the fishing industry. Additionally, the committee must: (1) identify the needs of the fishing industry, (2) develop grant proposals to fund projects that address the industry needs, (3) review grant applications, and (4) provide NOAA with grant applicants for approval.
NOAA may not approve a grant application unless the application selected for funding meets the proposal criteria developed by the committee.
(Sec. 3) An individual awarded a grant under this bill must publicize the title and abstract of the project.
