The Council discussed the relative priority and scheduling of previously tasked projects, and provided guidance to the Chair and Executive Director about which items to prioritize for February and subsequent meetings. The revised 3 meeting outlook reflects this guidance, along with the posted February eAgenda. Council meetings, including Plan Team and Committee meetings, will be held virtually through the first part of 2021.
The Council also initiated a discussion paper to identify management tools that would prevent or minimize overages in sablefish area- and sector-specific TACs and ABCs.
Finally, the Council discussed the work of upcoming Committees, and made appointments to the SSC, AP, PNCIAC, and the Scallop Plan Team.
