SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The EWG is holding this webinar to help 
other Council advisory bodies and the public prepare comments on two 
topics the Council will take up at its September 7-12, 2018 meeting. 
First, the Council will be deciding on future activities as part of the 
Climate and Communities Initiative pursuant to its Fishery Ecosystem 
Plan (FEP). Second, the Council will be scoping the first 5-year review 
of the FEP. The Council may consider initiating revisions to FEP and 
forming any new ad hoc committees necessary to revise the Plan. To help 
advisory bodies and the public make comments on these topics the EWG 
prepared two sets of discussion questions, available on the Council's 
website (https://www.pcouncil.org/):
