In June 2020 the Council received the results of SEDAR 38 Update for King Mackerel. King Mackerel were determined to be neither overfished nor was overfishing occurring.  This amendment will consider modifications to management measures and sector allocations. The AP reviewed the amendment and provided recommendations. At their December 2020 meeting, the Council reviewed input from the AP and provided guidance to staff on actions and alternatives to develop. They also approved the amendment for scoping to be held during the March 2021 Council Meeting.
