The workgroup will review study designs for the different research tracks going forward as part of the 2014-15 EM cooperative research program, and providing input on data protocols. The Workgroup will also review how the research will inform the Council's objectives for estimating catch and discards, and will identify a timeline, milestones, and decision points for integrating EM into the Observer Program.
