The Pacific Fishery Management Council (Council) will convene a meeting of the Ecosystem Plan Development Team (EPDT) that is open to the public.  Please note, this is not a public hearing; it is a work session for the primary purpose of reviewing comments of the Ecosystem Advisory Subpanel (EAS) and drafting a report to the Council on initial stages of developing an Ecosystem Fishery Management Plan (EFMP).

The EPDT will meet on Wednesday, July 21, 2010, beginning at 10:00 a.m. and concluding at 5:00 p.m., or when business that day is completed.  The EPDT meeting will include a working lunch session.

The Council’s EPDT has taken the lead in preparing a Council-requested report on developing an EFMP that includes a draft statement of purpose and need, a draft list of possible initial goals and objectives, and a draft range of options on the geographic range, managed species, and regulatory scope of the EFMP.  The EAS met on May 4, 2010 to review a draft of the report and to provide comments to the EPDT.  The final report is scheduled to be presented to the Council at its September 2010 meeting in Boise, Idaho.
