Capt. Ronnie Daniels of Pass Christian and Fisher-Man Charters was selected by Gov. Phil Bryant to serve on the Commission on Marine Resources, the panel that oversees the operations of the Department of Marine Resources.

“It will cut into my fishing time, for sure, but only two or three days a month at most, and I see that as time worth spending to serve the resource and its users,” Daniels said. “It is worth giving up the time.”

Five commissioners, one representing each of the major stakeholders of marine resources: commercial fishing, charter fishing, recreational fishing, seafood processors and non-profit environmental groups, make up the Commission.

Daniels replaces Capt. Ron Harmon of Capt. Ron’s Charters in Biloxi, who was vice-chairman when his five-year term expired.
