The Scientific Coordination Subcommittee will convene the 7th national meeting of the Scientific Coordination Subcommittee (SCS7) in person this summer. The North Pacific Fishery Management Council will host this meeting August 15-17, 2022 in Sitka, Alaska, in the Harrigan Centennial Hall. The meeting addresses various aspects of Ecosystem-Based Fishery Management (EBFM), focusing on ecosystem indicators, multi-species modeling, and addressing distributional shifts in managed stocks. The three primary themes of this meeting are:

  1. How to incorporate ecosystem indicators into the stock assessment process?
  2. Developing information to support management of interacting species in consideration of EBFM.
  3. How to assess and develop fishing level recommendations for species exhibiting distributional changes?

The SCS7 Steering Committee has selected a diverse group of keynote speakers for each session, as well as a variety case studies to represent the issues being addressed across all Council regions. Moderated discussions will occur within each session. The NPFMC and the Steering Committee will produce digital proceedings in early 2023.
