The purpose of this webinar is to consider whether it is appropriate to recommend any changes to NMFS for the 2012 butterfish acceptable biological catch (ABC) and also whether the catch cap of butterfish for the longfin squid fishery should be altered to be a discard cap on the longfin squid fishery. This meeting would constitute “Meeting 1” of the 2-meeting framework adjustment process for “Framework 7 to the Atlantic Mackerel, Squid, and Butterfish Fishery Management Plan.” The second framework meeting would be at the October 2012 Council Meeting, which will be noticed separately. The meeting will be available via webinar via this link:
