Ad Hoc Ecosystem Workgroup to Hold Webinar June 19

The Pacific Fishery Management Council’s (Council) Ad Hoc Ecosystem Workgroup (EWG) will hold a webinar, which is open to the public.  The webinar will be held on Monday, June 19, 2017  from 2 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Pacific Time, or when business for the day is completed.

Purpose of the Webinar

In March 2017, the Council requested the EWG discuss the two ecosystem initiatives identified in Appendix A to the Council’s Fishery Ecosystem Plan:  A combined initiative on the socio-economic effects of fisheries management practices on fishing communities (A.2.7) and on human recruitment to the fisheries (A.2.6), and an initiative on the effects of near-term climate shift and long-term climate change on our fish, fisheries, and fishing communities (A.2.8). The EWG intends to discuss the specific objectives of the initiatives, inventory available information, and propose a timeline for completing either or both initiatives. The Council directed the EWG to report back at the September 2017 Council meeting.  The purpose of this webinar is for the EWG to discuss the tasks outlined above and begin planning their report for the September 2017 Council meeting.
