The Pacific Fishery Management Council’s (Pacific Council) Groundfish Management Team (GMT) will hold a week-long in-person work session that is open to the public.  The GMT meeting will be held Monday, January 29, 2024 from 12:30 p.m., Pacific Standard Time, until business for the day has been completed.  The GMT will reconvene Tuesday, January 30 through Friday, February 2, 2024, from 8:00 a.m. until business for each day has been completed.   

This meeting is being conducted in person 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 this week-long work session is for the GMT to prepare for 2024 Pacific Council meetings. Specific agenda items will include: the 2025/2026 harvest specifications and management measure process, stock assessment and review planning, and GMT chair/vice chair elections.  The GMT may also address groundfish management actions the Pacific Council has indicated on their Year-at-a-Glance calendar, such as: stock definitions, limited entry fixed gear marking and entanglement risk reduction, and groundfish workload and new management measure prioritization agenda items. A detailed agenda will be available on the Pacific Council’s website prior to the meeting.
