WFOA Vessel Owner Members, Onshore Supporting Members, Government and Agency Representatives: 

As of February 1, 2023 I am technically retired as WFOA’s executive directors, as position I have been at since 1996. I will be helping the transition as a Temporary Administrator. 

Mr. Clayton Wraith is the new Executive Director and will be easing into the management and regulatory issues we are involved in over the next few months as well as other public education, market issues, members issues, and other. 

Clayton is an attorney and WFOA is not his sole source of income but wants to be involved in helping US albacore fishermen maintain access to the resource and promote the product. WFOA will soon have a administrator on the west coast that will handle the everyday issues and general office functions. A new address, emails, and phones will be established. 

In the meantime you can contact Clay at (541) 729-0344 or 

Government agencies which I am on your list should add Clay for information. 

For regular admin issues you can contact me at (530) 229-1097, or Cell (530)-355-3151 voice or txt 

Thanks for your patience.
