    Agenda Item(s)

    A proposal to arrange a CCAMLR course in survey design and execution at KMRS is put forward to propagate the experiences gained in planning and executing the CCAMLR 2000 krill survey. The proposed course would recruit teachers and students from member countries and illustrate both theoretical and practical aspects of krill survey work by planning and performing a “miniature survey” in Gullmarsfjorden with the Nordic Krill Meganyctiphanes norvegica as a model organism. It is argued that such an international course would help to assure that the collective wisdom of CCAMLR is maintained, developed and disseminated to younger scientist.
