The Pacific Fishery Management Council is sponsoring a workshop to review methods used to reconstruct historical groundfish catches off Washington, Oregon, and California. The workshop is open to the public.
The purpose of the Historical Catch Reconstruction Workshop is to review proposed methods for reconstructing the historical catches of groundfish off Washington, Oregon, and California. Data stewards and others who are familiar with catch accounting systems will participate in the workshop. Recommended methods for reconstructing historical groundfish catches will be made available for use in groundfish stock assessments in 2017 and beyond. 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.
The Historical Catch Reconstruction Workshop will be held beginning at 1 p.m., Tuesday, November 1, 2016. The meeting will continue on Wednesday, November 2, 2016 through Thursday, November 3, 2016 beginning at 8:30 a.m. each day. The meetings will end at 5:30 p.m. each day, or as necessary to complete business.
