Groundfish Management Team to Hold Work Session

The Pacific Fishery Management Council’s (Council) Groundfish Management Team (GMT) will hold a one-day work session that is open to the public.  The GMT meeting will be held Thursday, October 6, 2016 from 9 a.m. until business for the day is completed.

Purpose of the Meeting

The primary purpose of the GMT work session is to discuss with the West Coast Groundfish Observer Program refinements to groundfish projection models for use in management.  The GMT’s task will be to identify which models need improvements, outline the improvements necessary, and develop recommendations for consideration by the Council at its November meeting in Garden Grove, California.  During the November meeting, the Council will determine which models are ready for review and recommend a review schedule.  A detailed description on the process for revising and approving models is outlined in Council Operating Procedure 25.  The GMT may also address other assignments relating to groundfish management.  No management actions will be decided by the GMT.
