Ad hoc Sacramento River Winter Chinook Workgroup and Salmon Advisory Subpanel to Hold Joint Webinar Thursday, August 3

The Pacific Fishery Management Council’s (Council) Ad hoc Sacramento River Winter Chinook Workgroup (SRWCW) and Salmon Advisory Subpanel (SAS) will hold a joint webinar on Thursday, August 3, 2017, which is open to the public.  The webinar will begin at 11 a.m. and will continue until business for the day is completed.

The SRWCW was formed in November 2015 and tasked with exploring and evaluating alternative fishery management frameworks for Sacramento River winter Chinook.  The SRWCW first met in 2016 and identified three areas of focus: 1) develop methods for forecasting abundance, 2) develop a suite of alternative control rules and 3) evaluate the performance of these control rules with regard to conservation benefits and fishery costs using a Management Strategy Evaluation (MSE) approach.  Since 2016 the group has addressed these tasks and provided progress reports to the Council as information was available.  At this webinar, the SRWCW will focus the discussion on the results of the MSE.  The SAS will attend to provide input and feedback to the SRWCW.  The SRWCW is tentatively scheduled to present preliminary MSE results to the Council in September 2017, and provide final results in November 2017.  The SRWCW may also discuss materials and reports for the Council’s September 2017 meeting, and any future meeting plans.
