The NSAC has a General Assembly and an Executive Committee. All NSAC members are a member of the General Assembly, they appoint an Executive Committee of 25 members to undertake the work of the NSAC. There is no limit to the number of General Assembly members. The Executive Committee membership must represent a 60%/40% balance between organisations with fishing interests and other interest groups. This gives fishing members 15 places and other interest groups 10 places in the Executive Committee.
