Public Meetings on Aquaculture Management Program
NOAA Fisheries is holding four public meetings virtually on Webex to hear public comments on the Draft Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement (DPEIS) for a potential aquaculture management program.
NOAA Fisheries, in coordination with the Western Pacific Fishery Management Council (Council), prepared a Draft Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement (DPEIS) pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) that analyzes the potential environmental impacts of a Federal aquaculture management program for the Pacific Islands.
To provide additional opportunities for the public to comment on the DPEIS, NOAA Fisheries will hold four public meetings virtually on WebEx. At each meeting, NOAA Fisheries will provide a brief presentation about the DPEIS, followed by the opportunity for the public to provide comments. Comments will be limited to two minutes each. If time permits and all commenters have spoken, NOAA Fisheries may offer an opportunity for additional comments. NOAA Fisheries may end any of the meetings before the two-hour scheduled time if all comments have been received.
The meetings are scheduled to ensure residents of each relevant time zone in the region are able to join. The meetings are accessible to people with disabilities. Please make direct requests for sign language interpretation or other auxiliary aids to Tori Spence McConnell, (808) 725-5186, at least 5 days prior to the first meeting date.
