West Coast Whiting Trawl Seabird Cable Strike Meeting
Discussion of research on seabird cable strikes and application to fishery management
Research projects observing seabird cable strikes and other interactions, as well as testing of mitigation measures, have been conducted in the West Coast at-sea whiting fishery. NMFS will present results from these studies to inform a discussion of their application to management.
The virtual meeting will be held on December 10, 2021, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., Pacific Standard Time (or until business is concluded).
