    This paper provides a summary of the operation of the fishery forecasting algorithm for the Ross Sea toothfish fisheries for WG-FSA-2021, reviews the forecasting algorithm for fishery closures in the 2019/20 and 2020/21 fishing seasons, and considers alternative scenarios. The secretariat considers that the implementation of the forecasting procedures in place were consistent with the objective of avoiding exceed the catch limits, but some improvements to the algorithm can be discussed to improve its accuracy.
