The Coastal Pelagic Species (CPS) Subcommittee of the Pacific Fishery Management Council’s (Pacific Council’s) Scientific and Statistical Committee (SSC) will hold an online meeting to review revisions to the habitat model for the northern subpopulation of Pacific sardine and methods for analyzing and using the 2022 CPS survey. The meeting is open to the public, and will be held Monday, March 20 and Tuesday, March 21, 2023 beginning at 9 a.m. and continuing until 1 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time or until business for the day has been completed.
