    We present a candidate, Stage-2 feedback management strategy for consideration by WG-EMM. The strategy uses existing CEMP data and three simple decision rules for adjusting catch prior to and during the fishing season.  The strategy does not necessarily require the use of no-fishing areas and implements a negative feedback whose magnitude varies according to an observed status of two independent indicators.
