    Agenda Item(s)

    The comparative analysis of fishing and investigations on Antarctic toothfish distribution in the Ross Sea (Pacific Sector of Antarctic) show the complete failure of division of Subarea 88.1 on 12 SSRUs accepted in 2003 and allocation of TACs (quotas) based on the square areas of bottom and CPUEs (kg/1000 hooks) received for the other toothfish species (Patagonian toothfish) in Subarea 48.3 (Atlantic Sector of Antarctic).
