These topics may include the mackerel Stock Assessment Review (STAR) panel meeting, CPS assessment cycle planning, a report on the April Council meeting, ecological considerations in CPS management, benchmarks for market squid, consideration of the Pacific sardine harvest control rule, and future meeting planning.

Although non-emergency issues not contained in the meeting agenda may come before the STAR Panel for discussion, those issues may not be the subject of formal action during this meeting. CPSMT 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 STAR Panel's intent to take final action to address the emergency.
