Washington Sea Grant, the School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences (SAFS), and the University of Washington College of the Environment invite you to attend a preview of this year’s assessment for
Eastern Bering Sea (EBS) pollock — the target of one of the world’s largest fisheries. The purpose of this forum is to provide fishery stakeholders and the public the opportunity to learn about the status of the EBS pollock stock and to ask questions and discuss the science underlying the assessment. Dr. James Ianelli, NMFS Alaska Fishery Science Center scientist and SAFS affiliate professor, will present the EBS pollock assessment model and the most recent assessment of trends in the EBS pollock stock, including the recommended ABC (Allowable Biological Catch) for the fishery in 2013. A reception will follow. We regret that the meeting room lacks teleconferencing capability.

Reception: 5:30 to 6:30 p.m.
