Meeting Recording

Purpose of the meetings

Drs. Harvey and Garfield of the NMFS Northwest and Southwest Fisheries Science Centers lead NOAA’s CCIEA Team, which produces the Ecosystem Status Report. It is presented to the Pacific Council annually at its March meeting. This annual reporting process was established through the Pacific Fishery Management Council (Pacific Council’s) Fishery Ecosystem Plan. These annual reports present a summary of environmental, biological, economic, and social indicators that give a snapshot of current ecosystem health. This information provides context for fishery management decisions taken by the Pacific Council throughout the year. The Pacific Council also regularly provides feedback to the CCIEA Team on potential improvements to the Report. This presentation is aimed at a broad audience of Council members, advisory body members, and the public. The CCIEA Team may follow up with more targeted discussions with advisory bodies during their March meetings, upon request. Drs. Harvey and Garfield will also brief the Council directly at its March meeting.
