Salmon Technical Team to Hold Webinar May 17, 2018

The Pacific Fishery Management Council’s (Council’s) Salmon Technical Team (STT)  will hold a planning session to discuss the development of salmon rebuilding plans.  This meeting will be held via webinar, which is open to the public.  The webinar will be held on Thursday, May 17, 2018, from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. (Pacific Time), or when business is completed for the day.

Webinar Agenda

Purpose of the Webinar

The purpose of this planning session is to discuss the schedule and workload associated with the development of five salmon rebuilding plans in 2018.  The STT will discuss a tentative timeline and meeting schedule for completing the plans and contributions of entities outside the STT in the development of rebuilding plans.  This webinar is intended to address the logistics of developing the plans; detailed discussions of actual content will occur at future meetings.  A proposed agenda will be posted once available.  If time and interest allows, additional pertinent topics may be discussed, including, but not limited to, future Council agenda items.

Three coho stocks (Queets coho, Strait of Juan de Fuca coho, and Snohomish coho) and two Chinook stocks (Sacramento River fall Chinook and Klamath River fall Chinook) were found to meet the criteria for being classified as overfished in the Pacific Council’s Review of 2017 Ocean Salmon Fisheries, released in February 2018.  Under the tenants of the Salmon Fishery Management Plan (FMP), a rebuilding plan is required for each of these stocks.  Among other requirements stipulated in Chapter 3 of the FMP, the STT is to propose a rebuilding plan for Council consideration within one year.
