The overarching goals of the Policy Committee meeting are to evaluate measures for controlling recreational catch of Pacific halibut south of Humbug Mountain (southern Oregon and northern California) to comply with the allocation provisions of the Catch Sharing Plan and the overall total allowable catch apportioned to Area 2A. No management actions will be decided by the Policy Committee. The Policy Committee's task will be to develop recommendations for Council consideration at their September 2013 meeting in Boise, ID.

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