    Abstract

    Research block 48.6_2 is set in a limited part of the large-scale ridge which runs from northeast to southwest. The fishing vessels usually cannot complete sampling catch limit (CL) and accordingly they leave substantial amount of CL unfished in the research block because of limited spatial range and the low CPUE there. To enhance utilization of CL for stock assessment there, we would like to propose the extension of 48.6_2 in the near future(WG-SAM-16/08).
