The purpose of the meeting is for the EOP Committee to review and provide feedback on a draft summer flounder conceptual model, data availability and draft management questions that could be explored with the conceptual model. This process and review is part of the Council's Ecosystem Approach to Fisheries Management decision framework in which the Council agreed to pilot the development of a summer flounder conceptual model that will consider the high priority risk factors affecting summer flounder and its fisheries. In addition, the Committee may take up any other business as necessary.
