Catch Estimation Methodology Review Webinar to be Held July 31, 2018

The Pacific Fishery Management Council (Pacific Council) is sponsoring a meeting via webinar  to review a new method proposed to improve catch estimation methods in sparsely sampled mixed stock fisheries.  The Methodology Review webinar is a follow-up to a March 28-29, 2018 Methodology Review.  The webinar meeting is open to the public.

The Catch Estimation Methodology Review webinar will be held  Tuesday, July 31, 2018 starting at 8:30 a.m. PDT and continue until 5 p.m. or as necessary to complete business for the day.

Webinar Agenda

Purpose of the Meeting

The purpose of the Catch Estimation Methodology Review meeting is to review and evaluate a new methodology under development by the National Marine Fisheries Service Southwest Fisheries Science Center (SWFSC) for partitioning landings reported as aggregated categories of fish into species-level estimates of landed catch.  The review will focus on short-term requests to the SWFSC team from the March Methodology Review panel.

No management actions will be decided by the Methodology Review panel.  The Methodology Review panel’s role will be development of recommendations and a report for consideration by the Pacific Council’s Scientific and Statistical Committee and the Pacific Council at their September meeting in Seattle, Washington.  Public comments during the meeting will be received from attendees at the discretion of the chair.
