The purpose of the August 6 webinar is to discuss the development of the a draft risk analysis, identify remaining data needs, and follow up on assignments and discussions from the Workgroup's previous meetings; the September 4 webinar will focus mainly on finalizing the draft risk analysis in preparation for the Pacific Council meeting in September in Boise, ID. At both of these meetings, the Workgroup may also discuss work plans, recommendations to the Council regarding future meeting planning, and progress made on assigned tasks related to the Workgroup's prime objective of reassessing the effects of Council-area ocean salmon fisheries on the Chinook salmon prey base of SRKW. This is a public meeting and not a public hearing. Public comments will be taken at the discretion of the Workgroup co-chairs as time allows. Agendas and meeting notices can be found on the Council's website at pcouncil.org.
Although non-emergency issues not contained in the meeting agendas may be discussed, those issues may not be the subject of formal action during these meetings. 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.
These meetings are physically accessible to people with disabilities. Requests for sign language interpretation or other auxiliary aids should be directed to Mr. Kris Kleinschmidt, (503) 820-2411, at least 10 business days prior to the meeting date.
