Greg DiDomenico

As Executive Director of the Garden State Seafood Association (GSSA), Greg attends the  Mid-Atlantic Fishery Management Council (MAFMC) and the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission (ASMFC) meetings in order to evaluate changes to the Fishery Management in the region. He helps to implement plans under the authority of these regulatory bodies. He is responsible for submitting written comments and giving public testimony on behalf of the GSSA.

Greg also represents GSSA to the New Jersey State Delegation as well U.S. Federal Delegations. This requires frequent communication and the development of a sound working relationship with legislative staff. In addition he tracks state and federal legislation and follows the actions of relevant committees. His experience within the management process, combined with his understanding of the everyday operations of many fisheries, has given him a proper understanding of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Management Conservation and Management Act.
