Shelley Denny was recently appointed to the  Fisheries Resource Conservation Council by the Minister of Fisheries and Oceans.

74Since 1993 , the Fisheries Resource Conservation Council has been a partnership between scientific and academic expertise, and all sectors of the fishing industry. Together, Council members make public recommendations to the Minister of Fisheries and Oceans on conservation measures for the Atlantic fishery. Members are chosen on merit and standing in the community, and not as representatives of organizations, areas or interests: science members are drawn from government departments, universities or international posts, and are of an appropriate mix of disciplines, including fisheries management and economics; and industry members are knowledgeable about fishing and the fishing industry, and understand the operational and economic impacts of conservation decisions.
