California Ocean Science Trust convened a peer review panel to evaluate the scientific merits of two proposed management strategies that have been developed to support the California Department of Fish and Wildlife in designing a recreational red abalone fishery management plan.
The final report prepared by the peer review panel is now available for review on the California Ocean Science Trust’s Recreational Red Abalone Peer Review web page.
A public webinar will be held on Friday, October 12, 2018 to discuss and share information about the report:

During the webinar, participants will have an opportunity to engage the peer review panel, learn about their recommendations as outlined in the final report, and ask clarifying questions. The discussion is intended to inform members of the red abalone community about the final report, which will be submitted at the upcoming Fish and Game Commission meeting on October 17, 2018.
An initial webinar was held on August 20, 2018, during which members of the red abalone community were invited to share questions about the science-based and peer review process. Information about this first webinar, along with links to the presentation and a recording of the discussion, are available on the Recreational Red Abalone Peer Review web page.
