SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

In April 2017, the Pacific Council heard a request to move the commercial salmon troll fishery boundary at Horse Mountain (40°05′00″ N Latitude) northward five miles (40°10'00” N Latitude.) The STT was asked by the Pacific Council to investigate any technical issues that may arise from such a move. Since that time, Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife has asked the Pacific Council to review its plan to adjust the commercial salmon troll fishery boundary between the north Oregon and central Oregon management zones. It is anticipated the STT will develop a work plan and timeline needed to conduct the analysis and produce a report for Pacific Council review. If time and interest allows, the team may also discuss additional topics, including but not limited to developing a Council Operating Procedure to help guide future requests for a boundary-change. Public comments during the webinar will be received from attendees at the discretion of the STT 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.

Special Accommodations

The meeting is physically accessible to people with disabilities. Requests for sign language interpretation or other auxiliary aids should be directed to Mr. Kris Kleinschmidt at (503) 820-2411 at least 10 days prior to the meeting date.
