    The reconciliation of CDS data with monthly fine-scale catch and effort data has demonstrated the effectiveness of the CDS to trace the catch of toothfish caught in the CCAMLR Convention Area. Whilst some variability has been observed amongst vessels, members have been contacted and dialogue is ongoing. This reconciliation has demonstrated the success in the methodology and will in the future be implemented in the reconciliation of trade data and other relevant CCAMLR datasets.
