2018: Review of draft procedural directive, extension of EFP

In June the Council reviewed the draft procedural directive on cost allocation in electronic monitoring programs and drafted a letter providing comments and requesting additional time for advisory body review and comment on the policy. In September the Council submitted the comments to NMFS.

In November the Council recommended an extension of the electronic monitoring EFPsf or whiting trawl, fixed gear, non-whiting midwater trawl, and bottom trawl through 2019. No-out-of-cycle EFPs were submitted for Council review

2017 Climate and Communities Initiative activities

In March 2017 the Council initially scoped a potential Fishery Ecosystem Plan initiative to take up in the coming years and requested the Ad Hoc Ecosystem Workgroup (EWG) to report back in September 2017 with more information to choose between a combined initiative on the socio-economic effects of fisheries management practices on fishing communities (A.2.7) and on human recruitment to the fisheries (A.2.6), and an initiative on the effects of near-term climate shift and long-term climate change on our fish, fisheries, and fishing communities (A.2.8).  The EWG presented a report in September that identified specific objectives of the initiatives, inventoried available information, and proposed a timeline for completing either or both initiatives.  Based on this scoping the Council decided to begin work on the Climate Shift Initiative with an emphasis on the wellbeing of dependent fishing communities.
