    Abstract

    Catch uncertainty is a component of uncertainty that is not routinely considered by CCAMLR. However, given the currently reported variability in conversion factors for krill, a nominal reported catch of 600 000t could actually represent a catch in ‘green weight’ of 2.5 million tonnes. Quantifying the level of uncertainty in reported catches of krill would require information on product specific conversion factors (including the time-scale over which those conversion factors were produced) as well as the product composition of catches.
