In March 2017, the Pacific Council requested the EWG to discuss the two ecosystem initiatives identified in Appendix A to the Council's Fishery Ecosystem Plan: A combined initiative on the socio-economic effects of fisheries management practices on fishing communities (A.2.7) and on human recruitment to the fisheries (A.2.6), and an initiative on the effects of near-term climate shift and long-term climate change on our fish, fisheries, and fishing communities (A.2.8). The EWG intends to discuss the specific objectives of the initiatives, inventory available information, and propose a timeline for completing either or both initiatives. The Council directed the EWG to report back at the September 2017 Pacific Council meeting. The purpose of this webinar is for the EWG to discuss the tasks outlined above and begin planning their report for the September 2017 Pacific Council meeting.

Although nonemergency 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.
