The panel was established in 1992 to advise the U.S. Section of the NPAFC on research needs and priorities for anadromous species, such as salmon, and ecologically related species occurring in the high seas of the North Pacific Ocean. The upcoming Panel meeting will focus on two major topics: (1) Review of the agenda for the 2010 annual meeting of the NPAFC (Nov. 1– 5, 2010; Busan, Republic of Korea); and (2) logistics for the U.S. Section at the NPAFC meeting.
