SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The items of discussion in the committee’s agenda are as follows: The Committee will continue development of a joint Northeast Multispecies Fishery and Scallop Fishery management action that will be developed to meet two objectives: (1) to develop measures for the Northeast multispecies and scallop fisheries that facilitates the harvest of optimum yield from the two fisheries by addressing the potential constraints of the groundfish stock allocations; and (2) to develop measures to reduce catch of groundfish in the scallop fishery by adopting measures that would allow benefits for the fishery from reduction in groundfish catch. The Committee will consider recommendations from the Joint Groundfish/Scallop Advisory panel. Options the Advisory Panel will recommend include, but are not limited to, such measures as developing management options to remove the yellowtail flounder catch cap that applies to the Georges Bank access areas, allowing research programs in the closed areas to determine the best times for scallop access, allowing the formation of voluntary bycatch cooperatives for the purpose of developing gear modifications that reduce groundfish bycatch, allocating the scallop fishery 100 percent of the yellowtail flounder it is predicted it will catch, and defining the General Category IFQ fishery as a separate sub-component of the yellowtail flounder annual catch limit.
