      1     Introduction
      1.1     Opening of the meeting

      Welcome to participants, overview of facilities, Secretariat’s offices, computer support and Internet access, scheduled breaks and extracurricular activities.

      1.2     Adoption of the agenda and appointment of rapporteurs

      Amendments to, and adoption of, the meeting agenda, assignment of working papers to agenda items, appointment of rapporteurs and procedures for producing the report, and review needs for discussions by subgroups and establish such groups as necessary.

      1.3     Review of requirements for advice and interactions with other working groups

      Convener’s synopsis of issues that have direct relevance to WG-EMM and which were raised by the Scientific Committee and Commission in 2013, as well as issues that were raised by the other working groups since the last meeting of the WG-EMM. This includes consideration of krill integrated modelling by WG-SAM (WG-EMM-13, paragraph 2.131) and the ongoing proof of concepts program by SG-ASAM (WG-EMM-13, paragraphs 2.137 and 2.138).

      2     The krill-centric ecosystem and issues related to management of the krill fishery
      2.1     Issues for the present
      2.1.1     Fishing activities

      Review and evaluate reports on past fishing activities, including information on the composition of the catch, analyses of catch and effort data, descriptions of the fishery, green weight issue, information on the behaviour of fishing vessels and economics of the fishery. Review and evaluate krill fishery notifications (CM 21-03). Discussion on krill fishery report being prepared by the Secretariat (SC-CAMLR-XXXII, paragraph 3.2).

      2.1.2     Scientific observation

      Reports and information relevant to implementation of the systematic scheme of scientific observation in CM 51-06.

      2.1.3     Krill biology and ecology and management

      Review relevant information and submissions on krill demography, biology, ecology etc. Review the influence of recruitment variability on the calculation of precautionary yield for krill, any new information on B0. Discussions on the stock structure of krill populations, top-down and bottom-up forcing in the krill-centric ecosystem, observed trends, etc.

      2.1.5     Role of fish in the ecosystem

      This agenda takes up the issues which WG-EMM would like to discuss under what we called ‘Fish-based ecosystem interactions’ in the past. A broader rather than region-specific discussions, on role of fish in the ecosystem aiming to allow a wider participation in the discussion in the Working Group.

      2.2.1     Feedback management strategy

      Primarily undertake topics related to the first two stages of the revised work plan to develop a feedback management strategy for the krill fishery (including review of CM 51-07 (SC-CAMLR-XXXII, paragraph 3.15):

      stage 1 – continuation of the current trigger level and its spatial distribution among subareas (CM 51-07 is to be reviewed in 2014)

      stage 2 – an increase from the trigger level to a higher interim catch limit and/or changes in the spatial distribution of catches that are adjusted based on decision rules that take account of results from the existing CEMP and other observation series

      stage 3 – a further increase to a higher interim catch limit and/or changes in the spatial distribution of catches that take account of results from an ‘enhanced’ CEMP and other observation series

      stage 4 – a fully developed feedback management strategy that is based on forecasts from ecosystem models, may involve structured fishing and/or reference areas, and includes catches up to the precautionary catch limit based on decision rules taking account of enhanced CEMP and other observation series.

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.
