    At the 2014/15 season the Spanish FV TRONIO had to return to Montevideo due to a collision with an ice block which caused a problem in a propeller, so it couldn’t perform the proposed research fishing in the 58.4.1 Division. A request to consider how to maximize the likelihood to undertake its research commitments was made by the WG-SAM-15. A minimum of 30 days within the 58.4.1 Division is established, except force majeure, fulfilling Spain's commitment to return to the same fishing areas where the depletion experience has been accomplished. The methodology of the proposal described below is the same as presented in the document WG-SAM-15/02.
