Scientific and Statistical Committee Meetings

The Scientific and Statistical Committee assists the Council in the development, collection, evaluation, and peer review of information relevant fishery management plans and amendments. The SSC generally meets two times each year. The meetings are open to the public and may be accessed remotely via webinar.

Written comment on SSC meeting agenda items for consideration by SSC should be provided to the Council office with one week of an SSC meeting. Comments may be submitted by mail or via e-mail. Public comment will also be taken at the start and end of each meeting. Details on submitting comment are provided in the SSC agenda and overview for each meeting.

Meeting information, including agendas and briefing book materials are posted as they become available. Learn more about the role of the SSC and access a list of members.
