    The Secretariat, with assistance from Prof Tetsuo Iwami, has developed a simple fish field guide designed to assist in improving the quality of observer by-catch data collected in the CCAMLR krill fishery. The draft guide provided includes a single key to distinguish fish families and 3 family specific keys for species found in the Southern Ocean. Members are invited to provide information and resources to improve this guide.
