In 2019, the Commission asked the Secretariat to investigate options to ameliorate the crowding at the October CCAMLR meetings, caused by recent increases in delegate attendance. Several options are offered, one of which (limiting attendance in the meeting rooms, providing overflow seating in the basement and streaming of proceedings to remote audience) is under trial this year. Other options are also presented including moving entirely offsite in the future.
