SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The HMSMT will discuss the development of alternatives and analyses for issues to be addressed as part of the HMS biennial harvest specifications and management measures process. Of the issues identified at the June Pacific Council meeting, the Pacific Council assigned highest priority to reducing recreational catch of Pacific bluefin tuna and identifying take caps (“hard caps”) for selected protected species (marine mammals and sea turtles) for the California drift gillnet fishery. The HMSMT may also discuss exempted fishing permit review and monitoring requirements for proposed management measures. The HMSMT will report on their work at the September 12-17, 2014, Council meeting in Spokane, WA.

Public comments during the webinar will be received from attendees at the discretion of the HMSMT Chair.

Although non-emergency issues not contained in the meeting agenda may be discussed, those issues may not be the subject of formal action during this meeting. Action will be restricted to those issues specifically listed in this document and any issues arising after publication of this document 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 intent to take final action to address the emergency.Start Printed Page 40066
