      2.2     Issues for the future
      2.2.1     Feedback management strategy

      Primarily undertake the second two components of work to develop a feedback management strategy for the krill fishery (SC-CAMLR-XXX, paragraphs 3.33 and 3.34):

      • review of spatial and temporal structure in the ecosystem in which the current Area 48 fishery operates and consideration of the implications for monitoring and management
      • development of agreed decision-making mechanisms for the candidate feedback management approaches, including decision rules which identify how fishing strategies and/or monitoring are to be adjusted on the basis of the indicators.

      Discuss the ways to achieve a wider participation to the discussion on feedback management.

      As at past meetings of the WG-EMM, rapporteurs will draft sections of the report. These sections will first be reviewed by the Convener and parties with strong interest in the topic and then submitted to the Secretariat for formatting, editing, and circulation for reading and mark-up by attendees. Proposed changes to the draft report must be made in consultation with the rapporteurs, who will inform the co-conveners and then provide the appropriate changes to the Secretariat. The report will be interactively adopted in plenary, using a data projector and support from the Secretariat.
