The Pacific Fishery Management Council’s (Pacific Council) Highly Migratory Species Advisory Subpanel (HMSAS) will hold a webinar, which is open to the public.

Webinar Date and Purpose

The HMSAS webinar will be on Tuesday, January 31, 2017, from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. Pacific Time, or when business for the day is complete.  The HMSAS will be briefed on proposed changes to the Fishery Management Plan for U.S. West Coast Fisheries for Highly Migratory Species (HMS FMP).  Changes are proposed in Chapters 1, 4, 6, and 8.  These changes are not intended to change the management framework described in the FMP or any related policies; rather, edits update descriptive information and improve the readability of the document.
