The Council's SSC and Groundfish Plan Team members will hold a workshop via Web-Ex, July 8, 2010, beginning at 12:30 p.m. Alaska Standard Time (AST) to review methods for determining annual catch limits (ACLs) for Tier 6 groundfish stocks. These stocks are poorly sampled by bottom trawl surveys and the catch history may not reflect the productive capacity of these stocks. The teleconference will review existing methods for determining ACLs for these stocks and also consider methods being proposed in other regions of the U.S. to evaluate if these can be applied to groundfish stocks of the Bering Sea and Start Printed Page 35444Gulf of Alaska. Contact the Council office for how to connect to the meeting via Web-Ex.
