The Pacific Fishery Management Council’s (Pacific Council) Groundfish Subcommittee of the Scientific and Statistical Committee (SSC) will hold two online meetings to review 2023 groundfish stock assessments. This is the first meeting and will be held Monday, August 14 and Tuesday, August 15, 2023 from 8:30 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. (Pacific Daylight Time) or when business for the 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
During this meeting, the SSC’s Groundfish Subcommittee will review new assessments and stock assessment review reports for copper rockfish in California, rex sole, shortspine thornyhead, and black rockfish. The SSC Groundfish Subcommittee will prepare their recommendations for the SSC and Pacific Council consideration at their meetings in September. Assessment recommendations may include endorsing these new stock assessments for management use or requesting further analyses to be reviewed at the late September review panel.
