The Advisory Panel to the United States Section of the North Pacific Anadromous Fish Commission will meet on October 26, 2003, at the Hawaii Convention Center in Honolulu, Hawaii. This session will involve discussion of the Eleventh Annual Meeting of the North Pacific Anadromous Fish Commission, to be held on October 26-31, 2003, in Honolulu, Hawaii. The discussion will begin at 8 a.m. and is closed to the public.
The members of the Advisory Panel will examine various options for the U.S. position at the Eleventh Annual Meeting. These considerations must necessarily involve review of sensitive matters, the premature disclosure of which would be likely to significantly frustrate implementation of proposed State Department action and U.S. participation at the Annual Meeting. Accordingly, the determination has been made to close the 8:00 a.m. meeting pursuant to section 10(d) of the Federal Advisory Committee Act and 5 U.S.C. 552(c)(9).
