    Request Meeting Document
    Document Number:
    S. Kawaguchi, R. Williams (Australia) and E. Appleyard (CCAMLR Secretariat)
    Agenda Item(s)

    The CCAMLR Observer Manual details scientific observation guidelines and contains a set of logbook forms with instructions for recording observations. This document proposes some revised versions of the log forms (fish by-catch, krill biological data, conversion factors) and guides in the observer manual which may maximize the opportunity to collect data, and also streamline/prioritize the work/sampling to be completed by the observers.
