December 6-8, 2016
The Pacific Fishery Management Council (Pacific Council) is sponsoring a workshop to review methods used to model productivity in groundfish and coastal pelagic species stock assessments. The workshop is open to the public.
The Productivity Workshop will be held beginning at 9 a.m., Tuesday, December 6, 2016. The meeting will continue on Wednesday, December 7, 2016 through Thursday, December 8, 2016 beginning at 9 a.m. each day. The meetings will end at 5 p.m. each day, or as necessary to complete business.

The purpose of the Productivity Workshop is to review proposed methods for modeling productivity in stock assessments for groundfish and coastal pelagic species. No management actions will be decided by the workshop participants. The workshop participants’ role will be development of recommendations and a report for consideration by the Pacific Council and the Pacific Council’s advisory bodies at its November 2016 meeting in Garden Grove, California and its March 2017 meeting in Vancouver, Washington.
