SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: Agenda The committee will discuss and develop options, strengths, and weaknesses of several strategies for permitting vessels to fish and receive catch allocations which could be consistent with example Fishery Ecosystem Plan (eFEP) catch management. It is not the intent to reduce capacity or re-qualify vessels and the committee will not discuss specific qualification criteria at this time. These strategies will eventually be incorporated into a draft Georges Bank eFEP. The committee will also discuss related business, including additional tasking for the Plan Development Team to complete a draft eFEP. Other business will be discussed as necessary. Although non-emergency issues not contained on this agenda may come before this Council for discussion, those issues may not be the subject of formal action during this meeting. Council action will be restricted to those issues specifically listed in this notice and any issues arising after publication of this E:\FR\FM\19MRN1.SGM 19MRN1
