Hello Mr. Sparks,  I'm Ellen Sebastian, Alaska Regional FOIA Coordinator.   We have questions regarding the scope of  your request.  The subject line of your initial email to NOAA FOIA is titled " Freedom of Information Request-Alaska-Bering Sea Cod Snapshot-NOAA." You specifically requested "All "snapshots" of data submitted to the North Pacific Fishery Management Council from 1 October 2015 to the present". Before we can begin search, we are unsure how to reasonably interpret  "snapshots" of data.   Can you please provide further information on the term "snapshots" and the specific data or data tied to a specific North Pacific Fishery Management Council (NPFMC) agenda item or meeting you seek?      We would appreciate your response as soon as practical. Please be advised upon review of your response, we may have follow questions.    Thank you in advance for your patience while we process your request.    Regards,  Ellen Sebastian ellen.sebastian@noaa.gov (907) 586-7152

Hi Ellen, thank you for your response. I'm trawling for the snapshot that Drs. Stabeno and and Duffy-Anderson produced for NOAA following their research aboard the Oscar Dyson at the beginning of October.

Feel free to call me anytime at (530) 902-5312 or I can call you if convenient for you if you like.

Thank you,

Brian
