    The Commission currently manages toothfish, icefish and krill fisheries. However, after three decades of activity the management of these fisheries by CCAMLR can be seen to be developing differently. That is to say, the monitoring of fishing activities in the krill fishery in the CCAMLR Area can be seen to differ from that implemented in other fisheries. This situation could be affecting the development of the krill fishery and giving rise to monitoring gaps which need to be addressed. We propose that the Commission consider an increase in observer coverage that would be implemented in stages over the next 4 years.
