SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The SRWCW was formed in November 2015 and tasked with exploring and evaluating alternative fishery management frameworks for Sacramento River winter Chinook. The SRWCW first met in 2016 and identified three areas of focus: (1) Develop methods for forecasting abundance, (2) develop a suite of alternative control rules and (3) evaluate the performance of these control rules with regard to conservation benefits and fishery costs using a Management Strategy Evaluation (MSE) approach. Since 2016 the group has addressed these tasks and provided progress reports to the Council as information was available. At this webinar, the SRWCW will focus the discussion on the results of the MSE. The SAS will attend to provide input and feedback to the SRWCW. The SRWCW is tentatively scheduled to present preliminary MSE results to the Pacific Fishery Management Council in September 2017, and provide final MSE results in November 2017. The SRWCW may also discuss materials and reports for the Council’s September 2017 meeting, and any future meeting plans. Although non-emergency issues not contained in the meeting agenda may be discussed, those issues may not be the subject of formal action during this meeting. Action will be restricted to those issues specifically listed in this document and any issues arising after publication of this document 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.
