    Difficulties in distinguishing between certain gonad stages is of common concern for observers onboard vessels fishing for Dissostichus eleginoides. To minimise errors in interpretation of maturity scales of D. eleginoides a comprehensive identification guide has been prepared. It is proposed that this guide forms part of the CCAMLR observer manual.
