Mr. Delaney, currently a government relations consultant, is highly regarded in the fishery industry. He has over 15 years of direct involvement with the International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas and served for approximately eight years on its Advisory Committee. Mr. Delaney has a diverse background in fisheries and international affairs as a commercial fisherman, fishery science, seafood export business, and was as a staff member of Senator John Breaux working primarily on fisheries issues.
Mr. Delaney earned his undergraduate degree from Union College in Schenectady, New York, and his master's degree in Fisheries Science from the College of William & Mary, Williamsburg, Virginia.

The International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas was established in 1966 to coordinate international research on tuna and tuna-like species. The Commission also makes regulatory proposals to conserve the species in a manner which will allow a maximum sustainable catch.
