FAC also advises on other issues affecting fisheries in New York State, such as advisories for fishing and game, regional patterns for mercury in certain species (e.g., trout), recreational fishing stewardship plans, and budget issues. The commissioner is an ex officio member and may vote to break ties when necessary.

As such, its role includes selecting the chairperson and vice-chairperson of the Committee, setting agendas for all its meetings and subcommittees, adhering to federal law and policy requirements when in session, and producing annual reports detailing its work.
