The Pacific Fishery Management Council’s (Pacific Council) Groundfish Subcommittee of the Scientific and Statistical Committee (SSC) and other scientists will hold an online meeting to review an Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) acoustic and visual survey for nearshore groundfish. This methodology review will be coupled with a workshop to evaluate Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) hook-and-line surveys for groundfish species. Participants will recommend how data generated from these surveys may inform future groundfish stock assessments. The online meeting will be held Tuesday, September 27, 2022 through Friday, September 30, 2022 from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time (PDT) or when business has been completed each day.
Purpose of the meeting
Meeting participants will review the ODFW acoustic-visual and hook-and-line surveys for groundfish species and evaluate data and analyses generated from these surveys to potentially inform future stock assessments. Meeting participants will also review hook-and-line surveys conducted by WDFW and the International Pacific Halibut Commission for groundfish species to evaluate their efficacy for informing future stock assessments.
No management actions will be decided by meeting participants. The meeting participants’ role will be the development of recommendations and a report for consideration by the SSC and the Pacific Council at their November 2022 meeting in Garden Grove, California.
