The Pacific Fishery Management Council’s (Council) Highly Migratory Species Management Team (HMSMT) will hold a webinar on Tuesday, July 29, which is open to the public. This webinar will be held from 9:00 a.m. to noon Pacific Time, or when business for the day is complete. The HMSMT will discuss the development of alternatives and analyses for issues to be addressed as part of the HMS biennial harvest specifications and management measures process. Of the issues identified at the June Council meeting, the Council assigned highest priority to reducing recreational catch of Pacific bluefin tuna and identifying take caps (“hard caps”) for selected protected species (marine mammals and sea turtles) for the California drift gillnet fishery. The HMSMT may also discuss exempted fishing permit review and monitoring requirements for proposed management measures. The HMSMT will report on their work at the September 12-17, 2014, Council meeting in Spokane, Washington.
