SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In April 2017, the Pacific Council heard a 
request to move the commercial salmon troll fishery boundary at Horse 
Mountain (40[deg]05'00'' N Latitude) northward five miles 
(40[deg]10'00'' N Latitude.) The STT was asked by the Pacific Council 
to investigate any technical issues that may arise from such a move. 
Since that time, Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife has asked the 
Pacific Council to review its plan to adjust the commercial salmon 
troll fishery boundary between the north Oregon and central Oregon 
management zones. It is anticipated the STT will develop a work plan 
and timeline needed to conduct the analysis and produce a report for 
Pacific Council review. If time and interest allows, the team may also 
discuss additional topics, including but not limited to developing a 
Council Operating Procedure to help guide future requests for a 
boundary-change. Public comments during the webinar will be received 
from attendees at the discretion of the STT Chair.
    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.

Special Accommodations

    The meeting is physically accessible to people with disabilities. 
Requests for sign language interpretation or other auxiliary aids 
should be directed to Mr. Kris Kleinschmidt at (503) 820-2411 at least
