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.
