The Pacific Fishery Management Council (Pacific Council) will convene a meeting of the Scientific and Statistical Committee’s (SSC) Groundfish Subcommittee (GFSC) to review public comments associated with the 2021 stock assessment and 2023 rebuilding analyses of quillback rockfish off California. The SSC GFSC meeting is open to the public and will be conducted in person with a web broadcast that provides the opportunity for remote public comment. The SSC GFSC meeting will be held Friday, January 26, 2024 from 8:30 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. (Pacific Standard Time) or when business for the 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 purpose of the SSC GFSC meeting is to review public comments associated with the 2021 stock assessment and 2023 rebuilding analyses of quillback rockfish off California, as provided during the November 2023 Pacific Council meeting. The review meeting will follow Terms of Reference designed for this specific review as requested by the Pacific Council, as well as SSC operational guidelines.
No management actions will be decided by the SSC GFSC. The meeting participants’ role will be the development of recommendations and reports for consideration by the full SSC and Pacific Council at the March 2024 meeting in Fresno, California.
