At this meeting, the AP will discuss a proposed seawall, ‘‘The Ike Dike’’, to protect Galveston Bay from hurricane storm surge, an update on oyster restoration in Galveston Bay, the Texas Clipper artificial reef project, status of the Flower Garden Banks National Marine Sanctuary Management Plan Review, the South Padre Island Second Access Project, and juvenile red snapper habitat use in the Gulf of Mexico. The Texas group is part of a three unit Habitat Protection Advisory Panel (AP) of the Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council. The principal role of the advisory panels is to assist the Council in attempting to maintain optimum conditions within the habitat and ecosystems supporting the marine resources of the Gulf of Mexico. Advisory panels serve as a first alert system to call to the Council’s attention proposed projects being developed and other activities which may adversely impact the Gulf marine fisheries and their supporting ecosystems. The panels may also provide advice to the Council on its policies and procedures for addressing environmental affairs. Although other issues not on the agenda may come before the panel for discussion, in accordance with the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act, those issues may not be the subject of formal panel action during this meeting. Panel action will be restricted to those issues specifically identified in the agenda listed as available by this notice. A copy of the agenda can be obtained by calling (813) 348–1630.
