The Pacific Fishery Management Council’s (Pacific Council) Groundfish Management Team (GMT) will hold a weeklong online work session that is open to the public. The purpose of the meeting is to prepare materials for the 2025-2026 harvest specifications and management measures and discuss other items on the Pacific Council’s November 2023 meeting agenda.  The online work session will be held Monday, October 16, 2023, from 1 p.m. Pacific Time until business is completed for the day. The GMT will reconvene on Tuesday, October 17 through Friday, October 20, 2023, from 8:30 a.m. Pacific Time until business for each 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 primary purpose of the GMT meeting is to develop recommendations on the development of the 2025-2026 harvest specifications and management measures for consideration by the Pacific Council at its November 2023 meeting. The GMT will also consider new management measures proposed by the Pacific Council at their September meeting. The GMT will dedicate their session on Friday, October 20, 2023, from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Pacific Time to specifically discuss items on the Pacific Council’s November 2023 meeting agenda. 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 this weeklong webinar will be available on the Pacific Council’s website prior to the meeting.
