The Pacific Fishery Management Council (Pacific Council) will convene a webinar meeting of its Groundfish Management Team (GMT) to complete analyses identified by the Pacific Council at their April 2022 meeting as potential 2023-2024 groundfish management measures and to discuss items on the Pacific Council’s June 2022 meeting agenda. The online meeting will be held on Monday, May 23 through Tuesday, May 24, 2022 starting at 8 a.m. Pacific Time and ending when business has been completed for each day. This meeting is open to the public.

Purpose of the meeting

The purpose of the GMT webinar is to complete analyses on several items, which include annual catch targets for quillback rockfish and copper rockfish off of California and to develop groundfish block area closures as bycatch mitigation.  The GMT will also prepare for the Pacific Council’s June 2022 agenda items.  The GMT will discuss items related to groundfish management and administrative matters on the Pacific Council’s agenda.  The GMT may also address other assignments relating to groundfish management.  No management actions will be decided by the GMT.  A detailed agenda for the webinar will be available on the Pacific Council’s website prior to the meeting.
