Purpose of the meeting (webinar)

The primary purpose of the Area 2A Pacific halibut manager’s meeting is to prepare and develop recommendations for the 2020 International Pacific Halibut Commission’s (IPHC) annual meeting in Anchorage, AK from February 3 through February 7.  Recommendations generated from the meeting will be communicated to the IPHC by the Pacific Council’s representative, Mr. Phil Anderson.  Attendees may also address other topics relating to Pacific halibut management.  No management actions will be decided by the attendees.  The meeting will be open to the public, and the agenda, which will be posted on the Pacific Council website prior to the meeting, will provide for a public comment period.
