Coastal Pelagic Species Management Team to Meet Via Webinar Tuesday, May 8

The Pacific Fishery Management Council’s (Council) Coastal Pelagic Species Management Team (CPSMT) will hold a public meeting, via webinar, on Tuesday, May 8, 2018, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. (Pacific Daylight Time), or until business for the day has been completed.

Webinar Agenda

Purpose of the Webinar

The purpose of the meeting is for the CPSMT to develop materials, including a proposed purpose and need statement, to assist the Council in establishing the scope for a potential action to revise the Pacific sardine live bait provisions in the Council Pelagic Species Fishery Management Plan, when the Pacific sardine biomass is in an overfished condition.  The Council established a process that includes scoping at the June 2018 meeting, adopting a range of alternatives at the September 2018 meeting, and final action at the November 2018 meeting.
