    Identification of bycatch species for scientific observers can be a difficult task whilst at sea, as freely available resources are limited, and often cover only a selection of common species. In the past year the Secretariat has requested by-catch identification material from Members, and has received several responses, included a Korean guide presented at WG-EMM (WG-EMM-15/06). This paper considers options for the development and distribution of these materials.
