The Council will convene to review section 216(c) of the Executive Order (E.O.) on Tackling the Climate Crisis at Home and Abroad (E.O. 14008) issued on January 27, 2021. Section 216(c) of the E.O. 14008 directs NOAA to collect recommendations on how to make fisheries, including aquaculture and protected resources more resilient to climate change, including changes in management and conservation measures and improvements in science, monitoring and cooperative research.

NOAA issued a Request for Information (RFI) on March 2, 2021 accepting written comments within 30-days and will continue to gather input through 2021. During the Council meeting, NOAA Fisheries will provide a presentation on Section 216 (c) of the E.O. and the Council will provide input.

Written comments may be directed to John Carmichael, Executive Director, South Atlantic Fishery Management Council (see ADDRESSES) or electronically via the Council's website at​safmc-meetings/​council-meetings/​. Public comment will also be allowed as part of the meeting agenda.
