Joint research proposal for the Dissostichus spp. exploratory fishery in East Antarctica (Divisions 58.4.1 and 58.4.2) by Australia, France, Japan, Republic of Korea and Spain
MetadataShow full item record
Exploratory fishing for toothfish (Dissostichus spp.) in East Antarctica (Divisions 58.4.1 and 58.4.2) began in 2003. Robust stock assessments and catch limits according to CCAMLR decision rules remain to be determined for these Divisions. Multiple research plans are currently in place by Australia (commenced 2015/16), France (commencing 2016/17), Japan (commencing 2016/17), Republic of Korea (commenced 2012/13) and Spain (commenced 2012/13). WG-SAM-16 welcomed plans for one consolidated research plan to be presented by all proponents of research in Divisions 58.4.1 and 58.4.2 to WG-FSA-16 (WG-SAM-16 para. 3.12). The Working Group also requested that measurable research milestones be developed to progress an assessment of toothfish stock/s in the area (WG-SAM-16 para. 3.13). We present here an updated research proposal including the research plans of Australia (WG-SAM-16/09), France (WG-SAM-16/01 & 16/02), Japan (WG-SAM-16/04 & 16/05), Republic of Korea (WG-SAM-16/17) and Spain ...
