The Chairman of the Habitat Committee will then provide a brief update on activities to date to complete Habitat Omnibus 2, an action that will amend all of the Council’s Fishery Management Plans (FMPs) with respect to Essential Fish Habitat and minimizing the habitat impacts of fishing activities. Members of the Council’s Scientific and Statistical Committee (SSC) will report on their white paper and further outline approaches to undertaking ecosystembased fisheries management. Prior to a lunch break, an Ocean Observatories Initiative representative will present an outline of their project—a networked sensor system array proposed for offshore Southern New England to measure the physical, chemical, geological and biological variables in the ocean and its seafloor. During the afternoon session, the Council will accept public comments on issues related to fisheries management, but not listed on the meeting agenda. Later, the Skate Committee will discuss and the Council will consider approval of an action to lower the skate wing possession limit for the 2011 fishing year. A Northeast Fisheries Science Center representative will report on the November 2010 Stock Assessment Workshop/Stock Assessment Review Committee meeting that determined the status of Loligo, and five species of hake. The day will conclude with a report on the recent International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas (ICCAT) meeting. The focus will be on bluefin tuna and northern swordfish. Wednesday, January 26, 2011 During the morning session, the Council may initiate a framework adjustment to the Northeast Multispecies FMP that could include a catch cap for haddock taken in the herring midwater trawl fishery.

Following this review, the Council plans to initiate Framework Adjustment 23 to the Sea Scallop FMP. The action could require scallop dredge vessels to use a turtle excluder device, possibly modify the amount of yellowtail flounder allocated to the scallop fishery and modify the limited access general category program in the Northern Gulf of Maine. The Council also plans to take final action on Framework Adjustment 7 to the Monkfish FMP. Included are measures to revise the biomass reference points, and accordingly, the Annual Catch Target in the monkfish Northern Management Area. Days-at-sea and trip limits for the 2011–13 fishing years also will be modified. Before adjournment, the Council may address any other outstanding business related to this meeting.
