      9.2     Current level of IUU fishing

      The Commission will consider current levels and trends in IUU fishing activities in the Convention Area as reported by the Secretariat and considered by WG-FSA, the Scientific Committee and SCIC.  It will also note any responses to efforts to secure general information on IUU fishing activities in the Convention Area.
      The Commission will consider whether the current compliance-related conservation measures effectively meet CCAMLR’s objectives on the elimination of IUU fishing in the Convention Area.  Particular note will be taken of efforts to eradicate gillnet fishing in the Convention Area (CCAMLR-XXIX, paragraphs 9.1 and 9.2) and the implementation of Conservation Measure 10-08 (CCAMLR-XXIX, paragraphs 9.10 to 9.13).
       

      9.3     Review of current measures aimed at eliminating IUU fishing

      The Commission will consider SCIC advice on the implementation of Conservation Measures 10-06 ‘Scheme to promote compliance by Contracting Party vessels with CCAMLR conservation measures’ and 10-07 ‘Scheme to promote compliance by non-Contracting Party vessels with CCAMLR conservation measures’.  In particular, the Commission will consider SCIC’s advice on the IUU Vessel Lists adopted in 2010 and any Proposed IUU Vessel Lists for 2011.  The IUU Vessel Lists for 2011 will be adopted.  The Commission will also consider any developments in respect of efforts by Members and the Secretariat to engage non-Contracting Parties on the issue of IUU fishing.
       

      10     Scheme of International Scientific Observation

      The Commission will receive advice from the Scientific Committee on the implementation of the Scheme and consider actions recommended by SCIC and the Scientific Committee to ensure that the Scheme continues to meet its objectives and operates in the most efficient and effective way.  This will include the outcomes of the Scientific Committee’s considerations for the implementation of a comprehensive program for systematic observer coverage in the krill fishery (SC-CAMLR-XXIX, paragraphs 3.17 and 3.18) and the process and criteria for the accreditation of scientific observer programs (SC-CAMLR-XXIX, paragraphs 7.12 and 7.13).
       

      11     Update Fishery Reports for new and exploratory fisheries

      For the 2010/11 season, the Commission approved exploratory fisheries for toothfish in Subareas 48.6, 88.1 and 88.2, and Divisions 58.4.1, 58.4.2, 58.4.3a and 58.4.3b (CCAMLR-XXIX, paragraph 11.30 and Table 1).  The Commission will review the operation of these fisheries and the management measures in force.
