SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The SSC's Groundfish Subcommittee will 
discuss the availability of ageing structures collected by the states

Subcommittee will recommend how ageing labs should prioritize the 
ageing of these structures to optimize the availability of data for 
2023 and 2025 stock assessments. These recommendations will be provided 
to the SSC and the Pacific Council for their deliberations at their 
September meetings.
