    Abstract

    Currently the target tagging rate to be achieved by vessels fishing in the CCAMLR area is set in terms of the number of fish tagged per mass of fish caught thereby mixing “units” of measure. This note questions whether it is appropriate to set the tagging targets these terms and suggests that defining the target in terms of a percentage of the number caught may be more appropriate.
