The Pacific Fishery Management Council’s (Pacific Council) Highly Migratory Species Advisory Subpanel (HMSAS) will hold an online meeting, which is open to the public. The meeting will be held Wednesday, August 23, 2023 from 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time or until business for the day is 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 purpose of this meeting is to familiarize the HMSAS with relevant topics to be taken up at the September 2023 Pacific Council meeting and begin considering the contents of reports the HMSAS may wish to submit to the Council. The HMSAS also may discuss a joint meeting with the HMS Management Team coincident with the September Council meeting to plan a workshop on West Coast swordfish fisheries and transition of the California drift gillnet fishery.
