The purpose of the meeting is to consider the provisional MAFMC quota recommendation from its December meeting. A review of that recommendation is necessary in light of updates to spiny dogfish stock status that occurred through the recent Transboundary Resource Assessment Committee (TRAC) review.

Although non-emergency issues not contained in this agenda may come before this group for discussion, in accordance with the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (Magnuson-Stevens Act), those issues may not be the subject of formal action during this meeting. Actions 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 Act, provided the public has been notified of the Council's intent to take final action to address the emergency.
