    Agenda Item(s)

    Standardisation of methods to measure krill and estimate maturity and feeding status is essential if studies involving inter-comparison of datasets are planned. The methods used by workers from different institutes are outlined in the hope that standardisation by WG-EMM can be established and thus improve the quality of data from research surveys as well as through the CCAMLR International Observer Programme.
