SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This meeting of the TCW will involve review of initial work products and refining future work plans.

In the event a usable approach emerges from this process, the Pacific Council may consider a fishery management plan (FMP) amendment process beginning after November 2011 to adopt the approach as a formal conservation objective in the Salmon FMP. Although nonemergency issues not contained in the meeting agenda may come before the TCW for discussion, those issues may not be the subject of formal action during this meeting.
