Groundfish Management Team

Katie Pierson is the Chair of the Groundfish Management Team (GMT). Whitney Roberts and Abbie Moyer both serve as Co-Vice Chairs. The staff officer of the GMT is Todd Phillips.

Management teams are working groups of state, Federal, tribal, and nongovernmental biologists and economists. Members serve indefinite terms and are selected by a vote of the Council. They monitor fisheries and prepare stock assessments and fishery impact analyses. They may also monitor catch rates and management impacts, analyze or recommend harvest limits, develop rebuilding plans, or conduct other tasks assigned by the Council.
