The Ecosystem and Ocean Planning Committee will meet on Thursday, September 19 (10:00 AM start) through Friday, September 20 (12:00 PM tentative end) at the Hyatt Place Inner Harbor (511 South Central Avenue, Baltimore, MD, 21202; telephone 410-558-1840). There will also be a webinar connection for remote participation.
The purpose of this meeting is to review and provide feedback on a draft summer flounder conceptual model, data availability and draft management questions that could be explored with the conceptual model. As part of the Council’s Ecosystem Approach to Fisheries Management (EAFM) decision framework, the Council agreed to pilot the development of a summer flounder conceptual model that will consider the high priority risk factors affecting summer flounder and its fisheries. A technical workgroup has been working throughout 2019 to develop a draft conceptual model and document the presence/absence of all supporting data and pertinent information.
