1 Comprehensive Ecosystem-Based Amendment 1 Ecosystem Workgroup Presentation for H.1.a. and H.1.b. September 13, 2014 Agenda Item H.1.a & H.1.b Supplemental EWG PowerPoint September 2014

2

3 Shared Ecosystem Component Species OR Shared EC Species round and thread herring, mesopelagic fishes, Pacific sandlance, Pacific saury, Silversides, Osmerid smelts, and Pelagic squids (with the exception of Humboldt squid)

4 Revise Purpose and Need Statement Not enough squid – add more Analyze alternatives, allowing continuing minimal incidental catch Draft FMP amendment language Section 1.2 Section Chapters 2 & 4 Chapter 7

5 Amendment 15 to CPS FMP Amendment 25 to Groundfish FMP Amendment 3 to HMS FMP Amendment 19 to Salmon FMP 1.0 Comprehensive Ecosystem-Based Amendment 1

6 2.0 Ecosystem Trophic Role Pathway

7 No Action Alternative: the Federal List of Authorized Fisheries and Gear NMFS published proposed rule on August 7, 2014

8 Alternative 2: Bring unfished forage fish species into the Fishery Management Plans and prohibit future directed fisheries, incidental retention allowed

9 Alternative 3: Bring unfished forage fish species into the Fishery Management Plans and prohibit future directed fisheries and incidental retention

10 Alternative 2: Bring unfished forage fish species into the Fishery Management Plans and prohibit future directed fisheries, incidental retention allowed Alternative 3: Bring unfished forage fish species into the Fishery Management Plans and prohibit future directed fisheries and incidental retention De minimis fishing: § (c) De minimis control rules. Klamath River fall Chinook and Sacramento River fall Chinook salmon have the same form of de minimis control rule described in the FMP, which allows for limited fishing impacts when abundance falls below S MSY. The control rule describes maximum allowable exploitation rates at any given level of abundance. The annual management measures may provide for lower exploitation rates as needed to address uncertainties or other year-specific circumstances. The de minimis exploitation rate in a given year must also be determined in consideration of the following factors: The purpose of this action is to prohibit new directed commercial fishing in Federal waters on unmanaged, unfished forage fish species until the Council has had an adequate opportunity to both assess the scientific information relating to any proposed directed fishery and consider potential impacts to existing fisheries, fishing communities, and the greater marine ecosystem. This action is needed to proactively protect unmanaged, unfished forage fish of the U.S. West Coast EEZ in recognition of the importance of these forage fish to the species managed under the Council’s FMPs and to the larger CCE. This action is not intended to supersede tribal or state fishery management for these species, and coordination would still occur through the existing Council process.
