    This proposal establishes a process for CCAMLR to increase transparency and documentation of research activities conducted under Conservation Measure 24-01 by adopting, annually, a conservation measure for research activities targeting Dissostichus spp. to be carried out under paragraph 3 of Conservation Measure 24-01 in areas with a zero catch limit or where directed fishing for Dissostichus spp. is prohibited. It also suggests minor amendments to Conservation Measure 24-01 to clarify the process for submission and review of Research Plans and reporting requirements.
