    Abstract

    Updates to the CEMP data submission e-forms for parameters A3 and A8 have been proposed to allow for more detailed data collection fields on prey species type and krill length, and to ensure consistency in data collection methodology. Updating these e-forms will also require an update to the method descriptions for these parameters in the CEMP Standard Methods manual. However, given the age of this document and that the last review of the manual was completed in 2004, the Secretariat proposes a review of the manual intersessionally by the CEMP e-group in order to ensure that it is meeting Members’ requirements.
