The implementation of the Scientific Committee recommendations to develop the standardized methods for processing and reporting future acoustic survey results requires clarity on some methodological aspects of acoustic survey. Furthermore, it is important to streamline the system of krill acoustic surveys carried out in the CCAMLR area.
In view of above, standardization of acoustic surveys will require
a) Clear and transparent definitions and requirements to streamline the system of krill acoustic surveys carried out in the CCAMLR area;
b) For each type of survey should be developed recommendations for design and cycling of acoustic survey; methodological aspects and standardized procedures for data collection and processing, reporting results.
