MICRA established it’s first Priorities Document for the 5-year period 2014-2018  to focus on a much smaller subset of priorities than the 10 goals and 133 tasks identified in MICRA’s Comprehensive Strategic Plan. The Priorities Document is intended to be a guiding document that is timely and responsive to the current biological, social, and political issues that influence fishery resource management. A new Priorities Document for the operational period 2019-2023 is under development.
