2020: Video review discussions continue

NMFS and the Council’s Groundfish Electronic Monitoring Policy and Technical Advisory Committees are developing draft business rules to implement third-party video review. This includes examining the level of video review necessary to audit logbooks and to audit video review providers. Agency staff and advisory bodies are discussing ways to reduce video review to the minimum level necessary to audit logbooks, as well as the decision points for increasing and decreasing the level of video review based on compliance and other factors.
