    SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

    The Council is considering requiring electronic reporting of commercial fishery Vessel Trip Reports (VTRs). This action would change the method of transmitting VTRs—the required data elements would not change. Existing regulations requiring that VTRs be completed before arriving at the dock would not change, but the timeline for submitting electronic reports may change. This meeting will provide a review of eVTR applications and gather input from the Council's commercial fishery advisory panel members and the public in preparation for Council action.

    The meeting is physically accessible to people with disabilities. Requests for sign language interpretation or other auxiliary aid should be directed to M. Jan Saunders, (302) 526-5251, at least 5 days prior to the meeting date.
