Ecosystem Workgroup to Hold Webinar Tuesday, May 22

The Pacific Fishery Management Council’s (Council) Ad Hoc Ecosystem Workgroup (EWG) will hold a webinar, which is open to the public, on Tuesday, May 22, 2018, starting at 9:30 a.m. and lasting approximately three hours.

Purpose of the Webinar

Two primary topics will be discussed by the EWG during this webinar. First, the EWG will discuss and finalize comments on the Pacific Council’s draft 2018 Research and Data Needs document. This report communicates the Pacific Council’s research and data needs through 2023, fulfilling the Council’s responsibilities under section 302(h)(7) of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act. The Pacific Council will review the draft document and consider comments from its advisory bodies and the public at its June 8-13, 2018 meeting. Second, the EWG will discuss the Fishery Ecosystem Plan Climate and Communities Initiative. The EWG may also review and discuss items on the June 7-13, 2018, Council meeting agenda and other ecosystem-related topics on future Council meeting agendas.
