The primary purpose of the work session is to review and discuss two draft terms of reference (TOR) for new coastal pelagic species (CPS) survey methodologies and for the upcoming Stock Assessment Review process. The CPSAS and CPSMT are not scheduled to meet during the September Council meeting, and may therefore develop written statements on these documents to the Pacific Fishery Management Council for consideration at its September meeting.
Although non-emergency issues not contained in the meeting agenda may come before the CPSMT and CPSAS for discussion, those issues may not be the subject of formal action during this meeting. CPSMT and CPSAS 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 Fishery Conservation and Management Act, provided the public has been notified of the CPSMT's intent to take final action to address the emergency.
This meeting is physically accessible to people with disabilities. Requests for sign language interpretation or other auxiliary aids should be directed to Ms. Carolyn Porter at 503-820-2280 at least five days prior to the meeting date.Start Signature
