    Trawl surveys are used in CCAMLR waters to estimate abundance of juvenile toothfish (Dissostichus eleginoides) and icefish (Champsocephalus gunnari). Documentation of some past trawl surveys has been insufficient to allow members of WG-FSA to fully interpret the survey results. This document suggests a standard pro-forma for reporting trawl survey results to WG-FSA based on survey reports for bottom-trawl surveys for hoki (Macruronus novaezelandiae) in the New Zealand EEZ.
