                SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Pacific Council will be considering two
                administrative items related to the ONMS at its September meeting. The
                first item, Chumash Sanctuary Designation, will focus on the proposed
                designation documents and regulations for the new Sanctuary, with
                particular focus on any proposed regulations that may affect fishing
                activities under the Council's jurisdiction. The second item is the
                consideration of new areas for coral research and restoration in the
                Gulf of Farallones and Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuaries. The
                Council will begin scoping this item in September and will consider the
                areas that may be closed to fishing and to what fisheries the closures
                would apply. This presentation is aimed at a broad audience of Council
                members, advisory body members, and the public. Pacific Council and
                ONMS staff may follow up with more targeted discussions with advisory
                bodies during their September meetings will also brief the Council
                 Although non-emergency issues not contained in the meeting agenda

                during this meeting. Action will be restricted to those issues
                specifically listed in this document and any issues arising after

                Management Act, provided the public has been notified of the intent to
