Webinar agenda

Purpose of the webinar

The purpose of this webinar is for the EWG to discuss revisions to the Fishery Ecosystem Plan, Chapters 3 through 6, as part of the five-year review. An electronic version of the Fishery Ecosystem Plan is available on the Pacific Council website, The EWG will present an annotated outline of proposed revisions to these chapters at the Pacific Council’s March 2020 meeting in Rohnert Park, California. The EWG may also discuss the 2020 California Current Ecosystem Status Report and any report from the January Climate and Communities Initiative workshop, if those reports are available for review before February 25, 2020.  This webinar is also an opportunity for other Pacific Council advisory bodies to receive information so that they may prepare their reports on ecosystem topics for the March Pacific Council meeting.
