SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Gulf of Mexico, South Atlantic, and 
Caribbean Fishery Management Councils, in conjunction with NOAA 
Fisheries and the Atlantic and Gulf States Marine Fisheries Commissions 
have implemented the Southeast Data, Assessment and Review (SEDAR) 
process, a multi-step method for determining the status of fish stocks 
in the Southeast Region. SEDAR is a three-step process including: (1) 
Data Workshop; (2) Assessment Process including a workshop and 
webinars; and (3) Review Workshop. The product of the Data Workshop is 
a data report which compiles and evaluates potential datasets and 
recommends which datasets are appropriate for assessment analyses. The 
product of the Assessment Process is a stock assessment report which 
describes the fisheries, evaluates the status of the stock, estimates 
biological benchmarks, projects future population conditions, and 
recommends research and monitoring needs. The assessment is 
independently peer reviewed at the Review Workshop. The product of the 
Review Workshop is a Consensus Summary documenting panel opinions 
regarding the strengths and weaknesses of the stock assessment and 
input data. Participants for SEDAR Workshops are appointed by the Gulf 
of Mexico, South Atlantic, and Caribbean Fishery Management Councils 
and NOAA Fisheries Southeast Regional Office and Southeast Fisheries 
Science Center. Participants include: data collectors and database 
managers; stock assessment scientists, biologists, and researchers; 
constituency representatives including fishermen, environmentalists, 
and non-governmental organizations (NGOs); international experts; and 
staff of Councils, Commissions, and state and federal agencies.
    The additional SEDAR 33 Assessment webinars are scheduled to begin 
at 1 p.m. on December 4, 2013 and 1 p.m. on December 11, 2013.
    Although non-emergency issues not contained in this agenda may come

those issues specifically identified in this notice and any issues 
arising after publication of this notice that require emergency action 
under section 305(c) of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and 
Management Act, provided the public has been notified of the intent to 
take final action to address the emergency.
