The six vacant seats are for recreational diving, oil and gas operations, recreational fishing, commercial fishing, research and education. Applicants are chosen based upon their particular expertise and experience in relation to the seat for which they are applying; community and professional affiliations; philosophy regarding the protection and management of marine resources; and possibly the length of residence in the area affected by the sanctuary. Applicants who are chosen as members should expect to serve three-year terms, pursuant to the Council's Charter. Applications are due by December 9, 2011.

    The Flower Garden Banks National Marine Sanctuary is located in the northwestern Gulf of Mexico. It includes three separate areas, known as East Flower Garden, West Flower Garden, and Stetson Banks.
