Meeting Agenda

Goal of the Executive Committee (EC) Conference Call: To provide updates on topics directly impacting the Dungeness crab fishery, and discuss and prioritize topics for consideration by the full DCTF membership.

  1. Welcome, introductions, agenda overview. 
  2. Public comment on non-agenda items. 
  3. Updates involving the Dungeness crab fishery, including, but not limited to 2022 DCTF Election status, new CDFW positions, Risk Assessment and Mitigation Program, etc. 
  4. Background and updates on the state’s efforts to implement line marking as a tool to better identify the source of marine life entanglements (including the origin state and fishery) and, potentially, to exclude or eliminate fisheries from confirmed, unknown entanglements.
  5. Continue discussions about tools that can create fishing opportunities when the risk of whale entanglements is elevated. Discussion may include but will not be limited to zonal management, regulations in other states, alternative gear, etc. 
  6. Confirm priority topics for the fall 2022 DCTF meeting.
  7. Adjourn
