Ad Hoc Ecosystem Work Group to Hold Webinar August 10, 2015

The Pacific Fishery Management Council’s (Council) ad hoc Ecosystem Work Group (EWG) will hold a webinar on Monday August 10, 2015, which is open to the public. The webinar will begin at 1 p.m. and will continue until business for the day is completed, but is expected to end no later than 4 p.m. During this work session, the EWG will discuss finalizing its report for the Council’s September 2015 meeting in Sacramento, California. The Council has asked for an EWG report on two draft Fishery Ecosystem Plan (FEP) initiatives: an initiative for a coordinated review of the indicators used in the annual National Marine Fisheries Service’s California Current Ecosystem Status Report; and an initiative on the potential multi-fisheries and multi-species effects of short-term climate shift and long-term climate change. Other topics may include one or more of the Council’s scheduled Administrative Matters.
