The Pacific Fishery Management Council (Pacific Council) will convene a Stock Assessment Review (STAR) Panel meeting to review the 2023 Pacific mackerel stock assessment. The meeting will be co-hosted by the NOAA Southwest Fisheries Science Center. The meeting will be held Tuesday, April 11 through Thursday, April 13, 2023. The meeting will begin each day at 8:30 a.m. Pacific Standard Time and will continue until 5 p.m. or until business for the day has been completed.
The meeting will be held at the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS), Pacific Room, 8901 La Jolla Shores Drive in La Jolla, California 92037.This meeting will be held in a hybrid format, with the STAR Panel meeting in person but will be broadcast with 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 primary purpose of the meeting is to provide technical review of the Pacific mackerel stock assessment. The review panel will consist of at least three members of the Pacific Council’s Scientific and Statistical Committee’s Subcommittee on Coastal Pelagic Species (CPS) and at least one independent expert from the Center for Independent Experts. Representatives of the Pacific Council’s CPS Management Team and the CPS Advisory Subpanel will also participate in the review as advisers.
