The Pacific Fishery Management Council’s (Pacific Council) Ad Hoc Marine Planning Committee (MPC) will hold an online public meeting. The meeting will be held Tuesday, June 6, 2023, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time or until business for the day has been completed. This meeting is being conducted remotely with a web broadcast that provides the opportunity for remote public comment. In the event an outage occurs or technical issues arise that impact the experience of remote attendees, we will attempt to resolve them but ultimately we cannot guarantee that they will be resolved satisfactorily.
Purpose of the meeting
The purpose of this online meeting has been revised and will not include presentations on the pending draft Wind Energy Areas off the Oregon Coast. The MPC will consider current offshore wind (OSW) energy issues and to provide information and advice to the Pacific Council for consideration at its June 2023 meeting. The primary purpose of the meeting will be to discuss pending Fisheries Communications Plans for the five California OSW leases provisionally awarded in December 2022. We anticipate representatives of the five California OSW leases to be present to join the discussion. Other topics may be considered as appropriate.
