ACTION: Notice of public meetings via webinar. Several fishery management bodies on the East Coast of the U.S. are convening three public webinars to continue work on an initiative called East Coast Climate Change Scenario Planning. This is a joint effort of the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission (ASMFC), the New England Fishery Management Council (NEFMC), the Mid-Atlantic Fishery Management Council (MAFMC), the South Atlantic Fishery Management Council (SAFMC), and NOAA Fisheries. The focus of the webinars will be to explore the key drivers of change that could shape East Coast fisheries over the next 20 years. There will be opportunity for questions and engagement from the public as well as a brief update on this multi-year initiative. DATES: These webinars will be held on Monday, February 14, 2022, at 3 p.m.– 4:30 p.m.; Wednesday, February 23, 2022, at 3 p.m.–4:30 p.m.; and Wednesday, March 2, 2022, at 3 p.m.– 4:30 p.m. ADDRESSES: The meetings will be held via webinar. All meeting participants and interested parties are asked to register for each webinar individually from this website: https://www.mafmc.org/ climate-change-scenario-planning. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Thomas A. Nies, Executive Director, New England Fishery Management Council; telephone: (978) 465–0492. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background: Climate change is a growing threat to marine fisheries worldwide. On the East coast of the United States, there is evidence of climate-related changes in distribution, abundance, and/or productivity of fishery resources. It is uncertain what the next couple of decades will bring, and how fishery management programs can best prepare to meet the challenges ahead. Over the next year, this joint effort will bring together researchers, fishery managers, fishery participants and others to discuss these questions and emerge with ideas and recommendations for how fishery management can potentially adapt to climate change. The management bodies in this region have decided to employ a scenario planning framework to discuss these issues. Scenario planning is a way of exploring how fishery management may need to evolve over the next few decades as climate change becomes a SUMMARY: E:\FR\FM\27JAN1.SGM 27JAN1
