The Scientific and Statistical Committee to Meet Via Webinar

November 9, 2015

The Pacific Fishery Management Council’s (Council’s) Scientific and Statistical Committee (SSC) will hold an online webinar. The online SSC webinar is open to the public.

The purpose of the SSC webinar is to review a revised west coast limited entry trawl individual fishing quota (IFQ) projection model developed by the Pacific Council’s Groundfish Management Team (GMT). The specific objectives of the SSC webinar are to review revisions to the GMT’s west coast limited entry trawl IFQ projection model to ensure the changes recommended by the SSC’s Groundfish and Economics Subcommittees in June were implemented and the model behaves as expected. During the webinar, the SSC will consider endorsing the GMT’s IFQ model to inform management decisions. No management actions will be decided in this webinar.

Date and Time of Webinar

The SSC webinar will commence at noon PST, Monday, November 9, 2015 and continue until 2 p.m. or as necessary to complete business for the day.
