    We propose revising several conservation measures at CCAMLR-42 to improve monitoring of the krill stocks and the vessels participating in the krill fisheries (CCAMLR-42/XX). One of these improvements is to update Conservation Measure 51-06 (2019), General measure for scientific observation in fisheries for Euphausia superba, to require at least one observer on every vessel is appointed under the Scheme of International Scientific Observation (SISO).
