Groundfish Management Team to Hold Webinars August 2 and September 6

The Pacific Fishery Management Council’s (Pacific Council) Groundfish Management Team (GMT) will hold two webinars that are open to the public.  The GMT webinars will be held Wednesday, August 2, 2017 from 10 a.m. until 12:00 p.m. and Wednesday, September 6, 2017 from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m.  Webinar end times are estimates, meetings will adjourn when business for each day is completed.

The primary purpose of the GMT webinars is to prepare for the September 2017 Pacific Council meeting.  A detailed agenda for each webinar will be available on the Pacific Council’s website prior to the meeting.  The GMT may also address other assignments relating to groundfish management.  No management actions will be decided by the GMT.  The GMT’s task will be to develop recommendations for consideration by the Pacific Council at its meetings in 2017.
