FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: The purpose of the GAC meeting is to consider draft alternatives, preliminary analyses, and other material for rationalizing the Pacific Coast limited entry groundfish trawl industry (trawl rationalization), and for allocating Pacific Coast groundfish stocks and stock complexes to the various Pacific Coast fishery sectors (intersector allocation). Trawl rationalization issues will be discussed by the GAC on Tuesday and Wednesday, September, 25–26; and intersector allocation issues will be discussed on Thursday, September 27. No management actions will be decided by the GAC. The GAC’s role will be development of recommendations and refinement of draft alternatives for analysis in two contemplated environmental impact statements. The GAC recommendations will be provided for consideration by the Council at its November 2007 meeting in San Diego, CA. Although non-emergency issues not contained in the meeting agenda may come before the GAC for discussion, those issues may not be the subject of formal GAC action during this meeting. GAC action will be restricted to those issues specifically listed in this notice and any issues arising after publication of this notice that require emergency action under Section 305 ) of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act, provided the public has been notified of the GAC’s intent to take final action to address the emergency.
