20-21 August, 2020
It has been decided that the following meetings, scheduled to take place the week of 17 August, will convene virtually rather than face-to-face that week.
- NAFO Joint Commission-Scientific Council Working Group on the Ecosystem Approach Framework to Fisheries Management (WG-EAFFM) meeting; and
- NAFO Joint Commission-Scientific Council Working Group on Risk-Based Management Strategies (WG-RBMS) meeting
This decision has been made due to the current situation with the COVID-19 pandemic and in consultation with the co-Chairs of the WG-EAFFM and WG-RBMS, as well as the European Union, as original host of the meeting. The actual dates during the week of 17 August scheduled for the WG-EAFFM and for the WG-RBMS meetings will be proposed after consultation with their respective co-Chairs once the results of the June Scientific Council meeting are known.
