They will also include recommendations supporting the expansion of research programs and enhancement of partnerships among federal and state agencies, universities, and institutions to support the move to ecosystem management.

Action will be restricted to those issues specifically listed in this notice and any issues arising after publication of this notice that require emergency action under section 305(c) of the Magnuson-Stevens Act, provided the public has been notified of the Council's intent to take final action to address the emergency.
