    The purpose of the meeting is for the CPSMT to develop a range of alternatives for an amendment to the CPS Fishery Management Plan that would address changes in the catch allowances for the CPS live bait fishery when a CPS stock is in an overfished condition. The Council established a process that includes adopting a range of alternatives at the September 2018 meeting and final action at the November 2018 meeting. As time allows, the CPSMT may discuss other topics on the agenda for the Council's September meeting.

    Although non-emergency issues not contained in the meeting agenda may be discussed, those issues may not be the subject of formal action during this meeting. Action will be restricted to those issues specifically listed in this document and any issues arising after publication of this document that require emergency action under section 305(c) of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act, provided the public has been notified of the intent to take final action to address the emergency.
