Ad Hoc Community Advisory Board (CAB) to Meet October 24 and 25 in Portland, OR

Monday, October 2nd, 2017

The Pacific Fishery Management Council’s (Council) Ad Hoc Community Advisory Board (CAB) will hold a two-day meeting that is open to the public.  The CAB meeting will begin Tuesday, October 24, 2017 at 8 a.m. and recess when business for the day is completed.  It will continue at 8 a.m. Wednesday, October 25, adjourning when business for the day is completed.

The primary purpose of the CAB meeting is to review the public review draft of the catch share program five-year review document and continue to develop ranges of alternatives for Council consideration at the November 2017 Council meeting. The issues to be covered were identified by the Council at its June 2017 meeting, and include: meeting the at-sea whiting fishery bycatch needs; trawl sablefish area management (including limits on gear switching); shorebased individual fishing quota (IFQ) accumulation limit; shorebased IFQ sector harvest complex needs; and catcher-processor sector accumulation limits on permit ownership and harvesting/processing. Ranges of alternatives are to be developed and finalized for analysis over the course of the November 2017 and March/April 2018 Council meetings. Due to workload limitations, it is unlikely that all of these issues will move forward in 2018.
