The Pacific Fishery Management Council (Council) will hold an online webinar to develop alternatives for determining the status of groundfish stocks based on results of data-moderate assessments. The online Groundfish Status Determination Criteria for Data-Moderate Stocks webinar is open to the public, although space for online access is limited to the first 100 participants.
The Groundfish Status Determination Criteria for Data-Moderate Stocks webinar will commence at 9 a.m. PST, Friday, December 21, 2012 and continue until noon or as necessary to complete business for the day.
The purpose of the Groundfish Status Determination Criteria for Data-Moderate Stocks webinar is to develop alternative status determination criteria for stocks that are assessed using new data-moderate methods adopted last year for use in the 2013 assessment cycle. No management actions will be decided in this workshop. Any recommendations developed at the workshop will be submitted for consideration by the Council at its March 2013 meeting in Tacoma, Washington.
