The WG-EMM noted that it’s urgent to develop the sampling protocol which can be used by the observer consistently. The WG-EMM 2019 stressed the priorities for data collection, information sharing and overall tasking for observers in the krill fishery and recommended the timeliness of holding a focused workshop. The delegation of China seek Scientific Committee’s endorsement of the draft terms of reference and the budget for the Krill Fishery Observer Workshop as described in this paper.
