The purpose of the work session is to prepare CPSAS comments to the Council regarding two matters, (1) potential collateral impacts on CPS fisheries from proposed regulations for the 2003 West Coast groundfish fishery, and (2) recommendations from the Start Printed Page 54174Council’s Ad Hoc Marine Reserves Policy Committee regarding marine reserves in California state waters. Both of these matters are due for final Council consideration at the September 2002 Council meeting. This conference call is intended to provide the CPSAS opportunity to consider these matters and develop recommendations for the Council.
Although nonemergency issues not contained in the CPSAS meeting agenda may come before the CPSAS for discussion, those issues may not be the subject of formal CPSAS action during this meeting. CPSAS action will be restricted to those issues specifically listed in this document and any issues arising after publication of this document that require emergency action under section 305(c) of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act, provided the public has been notified of the CPSAS's intent to take final action to address the emergency.
