The National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) Southwest Fisheries Science Center (SWFSC) and Northwest Fisheries Science Center (NWFSC) will be hosting an informal outreach event about the Integrated West Coast Pelagics Survey on Wednesday, April 19, 2023 from 2-4 pm PST at the NOAA Western Regional Center in Seattle (NOAA Western Regional Center, Building 9, in the Kelly C. Sandy III Auditorium located at 7600 Sand Point Way NE., Seattle, WA 98115). This workshop will be offered in a hybrid format. This is the first of several public outreach events for all stakeholders regarding the Integrated West Coast Pelagics Survey.
Purpose of the Event
The Integrated West Coast Pelagics Survey is an effort by NOAA to combine the Northwest Fisheries Science Center’s survey for Pacific hake with the Southwest Fisheries Science Center’s survey for coastal pelagic species, starting in 2025. The NOAA Southwest and Northwest Fisheries Science Centers will host this first, of several, public outreach events for all stakeholders. At this first meeting, the SWFSC and NWFSC will provide a brief status update and dedicate most of our two hours to open discussion. So stakeholders should bring your questions, concerns, and ideas.
Future sessions will be held later this year throughout the US West Coast, each presenting the same information with both an in-person and virtual option. So stay tuned for a full schedule of meetings.
