Ecosystem Workgroup to Hold Webinar

The Pacific Fishery Management Council’s (Council) Ad Hoc Ecosystem Workgroup (EWG) will hold a webinar on Wednesday, April 29, 2015, which is open to the public. The webinar will begin at 1:30 p.m. and is expected to last about two hours. The primary purpose of the webinar is for the EWG to plan development of a new initiative pursuant to the Council’s Fishery Ecosystem Plan. The Council adopted this initiative, the Coordinated Ecosystem Indicator Review Initiative, at its March 2015 meeting. The Council requested the EWG, in concert with the Scientific and Statistical Committee’s Ecosystem-Based Fishery Management Subcommittee and National Marine Fishery Service’s Integrated Ecosystem Assessment Team, to evaluate ecosystem indicators presented in the Annual State of the California Current Ecosystem Report, identify potential new indicators, and coordinate review of indicators by the Council’s other advisory bodies. The EWG is expected to report back to the Council with a workload assessment and timeline later this year. Related matters stemming from the Council’s assignment also may be discussed. Public comment will be taken at the discretion of the EWG Chair.
