Ad Hoc Southern Resident Killer Whale Workgroup to Hold Webinar September 24, 2019

The Pacific Fishery Management Council’s (Pacific Council)  Ad Hoc Southern Resident Killer Whale (SRKW) Workgroup (Workgroup) will meet via webinar, and this meeting will be open to the public.  The  webinar meeting will be held on Tuesday, September 24, 2019, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time (PDT), or until business for the day has been completed.  This is a public meeting and not a public hearing.  Public comments will be taken at the discretion of the Workgroup co-chairs as time allows.

Purpose of the Meeting

The purpose of the webinar will be to review and discuss the proceedings of the Pacific Council meeting in September in Boise, Idaho relative to SRKWs, discuss data needs, document development, work plans, and progress made on assigned tasks.  The Workgroup may also discuss and prepare for future Workgroup and Pacific Council meetings.  The Pacific Council’s Salmon Advisory Subpanel will be invited to attend in order to provide additional input and comments on the Workgroup’s draft Risk Assessment report as needed. Although non-emergency issues not contained in the Workgroup meeting agendas may come before the Workgroup for discussion, those issues may not be the subject of formal action during these meetings.

Supplemental Information

The National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) reinitiated Endangered Species Act (ESA) consultation on the effect of Pacific Council-area ocean salmon fisheries on SRKW.  The Pacific Council formed the Workgroup to reassess the effects of Pacific Council-area ocean salmon fisheries on the Chinook salmon prey base of SRKW.  The Workgroup has held multiple meetings since their inception.  Materials presented during past Workgroup meetings may be found on the NMFS West Coast Regional website (https://www.fisheries.noaa.gov/west-coast/southern-resident-killer-whales-and-fisheries-interaction-workgroup).  Agendas and meeting notices can be found on the Pacific Council’s website at https://www.pcouncil.org.
