Due to the federal government shutdown, the meeting of the ABC Control Rule Work Group and Standing and Special Reef Fish SSC scheduled for Tuesday, October 8 through Thursday, October 10, 2013, is canceled.


Attendance by National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) staff is necessary for several of the agenda items; however, the shutdown prevents NMFS staff from participating in the meeting. Critical agenda items that were to be addressed at this SSC meeting will be rescheduled for the next meeting.  That meeting is tentatively scheduled for January 14-16, 2014
