    The annual meeting of the SCAR Krill Action Group (SKAG) was held online from 7 to 11 March 2022 at 1500-1700 UTC as a series of Zoom meetings, and attended by around 60 participants each day. The meeting consisted of SKAG administrative updates, a series of presentations on new data collection methods, a session led by the US AMLR group on variability in krill recruitment and its implications for modelling and fishery management, and general discussion. The discussions centred around the question of how we can best estimate recruitment, and how we can develop a stronger and biologically meaningful spawning stock-recruitment relationship. Key Points from the SKAG Meeting discussion are summarised.
