    Currently, CCAMLR's regulatory framework lacks clear and transparent definitions of fishery types, resulting in contradictions related to understanding the essence of different types of fisheries.

    The Russian Federation considers it appropriate, as a first stage, to review the procedural and implementational aspects of the Antarctic fishery classification in the regulatory framework, and, as a second stage, to establish the status of existing fisheries (clarification of fishery nomenclature). Our view is that the results of each stage should be approved by the Commission.
