Oversight of the SEDAR program is provided by a Steering Committee including representatives of the various partner organizations. The Steering Committee meets regularly to discuss assessment project scheduling and SEDAR policies and procedures.

Items for discussion during this webinar include:

1. Gulf Council 2014 benchmark stocks.
