The GMT meeting will be held Tuesday, October 2, 2012 from 1 p.m. until business for the day is completed. The GMT meeting will reconvene Wednesday, October 3 through Thursday, October 4 from 8:30 a.m. until business for each day has been completed.
The primary purpose of the GMT working meeting is to develop recommendations regarding the use of descending devices to recompress rockfish encountered in west coast recreational fisheries. Further, the GMT will discuss potential survival estimates for cowcod and yelloweye rockfish released using descending devices. The GMT may also address other assignments relating to groundfish management. No management actions will be decided by the GMT.
