At CCAMLR-XXXIII the Commission noted the discussion in the Scientific Committee on activities concerning toothfish in SSRUs 882A–B, where a clearer association of these SSRUs with the Ross Sea stock was considered, and recalled the discussion of the Commission in 2013 regarding the rationale for the revision of the boundary between Subareas 88.1 and 88.2. The Commission also reviewed last year's advice from the Scientific Committee on the matter (SC-CAMLR-XXXII, paragraph 3.160). The Commission was unable to make a decision based on this advice in 2013 (CCAMLR-XXXII, paragraphs 5.34–5.36), nor at the 2014 meeting. The commission encouraged Members to continue working on this issue intersessionally so that the Scientific Committee and its working groups can review it in 2015. The Scientific Committee asked the Commission to consider the matter again next year (SC-CAMLR-XXXIII, paragraph 3.228).
