    Agenda Item(s)

    This paper proposes a minor modification to the "indicators of fishing" adopted at CCAMLR XIV to ensure that all methods of fishing (longlining, potting and trawling) in the Convention Area are appropriately covered. Specifically, it is proposed that point IX (a) be amended to more fully address harvesting by potting and trawling.
