Time: 1:30 pm  to  3:30 pm

The Groundfish Subcommittee of the Pacific Fishery Management Council’s Scientific and Statistical Committee (SSC) will hold an online meeting to plan a later methodology review of elasmobranch harvest control rules and management reference points.  This online meeting is open to the public, and will be held Wednesday, September 2, 2020, from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., Pacific Daylight Time, or until business for the day has been completed.

Purpose of the meeting

The purpose of the SSC Groundfish Subcommittee meeting is to plan for a later methodology review of harvest control rules (HCRs) and management reference points for managing West Coast elasmobranch species in the Pacific Council process.  The SSC Groundfish Subcommittee will plan the timing of the subsequent methodology review and the analyses needed to evaluate HCRs and management reference points to be used in deciding elasmobranch harvest specifications beginning in 2023.

No management actions will be decided by the SSC’s Groundfish Subcommittee.  The SSC Groundfish Subcommittee members’ role will be development of a plan for a subsequent methodology review of elasmobranch HCRs and management reference points and a report for consideration by the SSC and Pacific Council at their September and/or November 2020 meetings.
