(17) Summary of key findings

    The agenda is subject to change, and the latest version will be 
posted at https://meetings.npfmc.org/Meeting/Details/2945 prior to the 
meeting, along with meeting materials.
    The purpose of the SCS7 meeting is for participants to discuss 
various aspects of addressing Ecosystem-Based Fishery Management 
(EBFM), including ecosystem indicators, multi-species modeling and 
addressing distributional shifts in managed stocks. to better inform 
management decision-making by the eight Regional Fishery Management 
Councils and NMFS. No management actions will be decided by the 
participants attending the SCS7 meeting. The participants' role will be 
the development of findings, which will be captured in proceedings of 
the meeting. These proceedings will be provided to the Council 
Coordination Committee and posted on the U.S. Regional Fishery 
Management Councils' website.
