National Fisheries Institute Statement on the NOAA Appointment of Janet Coit

WASHINGTON, DC – June 22, 2021 — WASHINGTON, D.C. – The National Fisheries Institute is pleased the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has appointed Janet Coit to lead the agency as the assistant administrator.

During her tenure at the Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management, she developed an ability to work with stakeholders to ensure seafood was harvested the right way, streamlined agency processes, and promoted seafood locally and abroad.  This same approach is needed at the federal level.  

We look forward to working with Janet Coit in her new role.
