The Pacific Fishery Management Council’s (Pacific Council)  Ad Hoc Ecosystem Workgroup (EWG) will host an online meeting and briefing for members of other Council advisory bodies that is open to the public. The online meeting will be held Thursday, September 2, 2021, from 1:30 p.m., Pacific Daylight Time, until 4:30 p.m., or until business for the day has been completed.

Purpose of the meeting

At its March 2021 meeting the Pacific Council directed the EWG to prepare a final draft of the revised Fishery Ecosystem Plan (FEP) for review by the Council at its September 2021 meeting. The EWG submitted the final draft in the advance briefing book for the September meeting (Agenda Item H.1, EWG Report 1). As part of this online meeting the EWG Chair will provide a briefing for other advisory body members and members of the public to learn about updated sections in the final draft document. This should help to focus recommendations and comments on the revised FEP for Council consideration in providing further guidance to the EWG. The EWG will then discuss potential recommendations for the FEP Climate and Communities Initiative, which the Council is scheduled to discuss at its September meeting.
