The committee will review and provide comment to the Council on a proposed economic analysis to revise management of the “other species” groundfish assemblage into separate group specifications for sharks, skates, sculpins, squids, and octopuses, and possibly grenadiers. The proposed actions would require amending the groundfish fishery management plans for the Bering Sea / Aleutian Islands and Gulf of Alaska.
Although non-emergency issues not contained in this agenda may come before this group for discussion, those issues may not be the subject of formal action during this meeting. Action will be restricted to those issues specifically identified in this notice and any issues arising after publication of this notice 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 Council's intent to take final action to address the emergency.
