The Pacific Fishery Management Council’s (Council) Ad Hoc Ecosystem Workgroup (EWG) will hold a work session by means of a webinar, which is open to the public. The EWG webinar will begin at 1:30 p.m., Pacific Time on May 19, 2016, and continue to 4:30 p.m. or when work for the day is completed.
The purpose of the webinar is for the EWG to discuss and draft comments on the NOAA Fisheries Climate Science Strategy (NCSS) Western Regional Action Plan (WRAP). A March 22, 2016 draft of the WRAP may be downloaded at http://www.st.nmfs.noaa.gov/ecosystems/climate/rap/western-regional-action-plan. The WRAP is being developed to increase the production, delivery, and use of climate-related information and will identify priority needs and specific actions to implement the NOAA Fisheries Climate Science Strategy in the region over the next five years. Based on the webinar discussion, the EWG may submit a written report with its comments for the Council’s June 23-28, 2016 meeting in Tacoma, Washington. The EWG will also discuss progress on completing the Coordinated Ecosystem Indicator Review Initiative and plan future activities. This initiative is an opportunity for the larger Council family to discuss the Annual State of the California Current Ecosystem Report’s indicator categories, what indicators should be part of the annual report, and how they interface with Council-managed fisheries to better support the Council’s ecosystem-based management policies.
