Salmon Methodology Review Meeting to be held via webinar Tuesday, October 22

Thursday, September 26th, 2019

Purpose of the meeting

The purpose of the methodology review meeting is to discuss and review proposed changes to analytical methods used in salmon management.  Three topics were approved for consideration of review at the September 2019 Pacific Council meeting:  (1) Conduct the technical analysis needed to inform a change of the salmon management boundary line from latitude 40° 05′ (Horse Mountain, California) five miles north to latitude 40° 10′, (2) Examine the data and models used to forecast impacts on Columbia River summer Chinook to determine whether a change in methodology is warranted, and (3) Provide documentation of the abundance forecast approach used for Willapa Bay natural coho.

Results and recommendations from this methodology review meeting will be presented at the November 2019 Pacific Council meeting where the Pacific Council is scheduled to take final action on the proposals.  A draft of the updated Fishery Regulation Assessment Model user manual provided by the Pacific Council’s Model Evaluation Workgroup may also be discussed.  If time and interest allows, additional topics may be discussed, including, but not limited to, future Pacific Council agenda items.
