The Council's Golden Tilefish Advisory Panel will meet via webinar on Tuesday, February 16, 2016 from 9 a.m. until noon.
The purpose of the meeting is to develop the 2016 Fishery Performance Report (FPR; produced by the Advisory Panel Members). The intent of this report is to facilitate a venue for structured input from the Advisory Panel members for the Golden Tilefish specifications process, including recommendations by the Council and its Scientific and Statistical Committee (SSC).
In April 2014, the Council set Golden Tilefish specifications for 2015, 2016, and 2017. The FPR for 2016 will be reviewed by the SSC during the mid-term review of 2017 specifications, and by the Council at the April 12-14 meeting.
