The purpose of the meeting is to create a Fishery Performance Report by the Council's Spiny Dogfish Advisory Panel.  The intent of the report is to facilitate structured input from the Advisory Panel members into the specifications process.  Spiny dogfish specifications were recently announced for the 2016-2018 fishing years, but the Council and its Scientific and Statistical Committee (SSC) review the performance of multi-year specifications each year.
