    The Scientific Committee considered the assessment of Dissostichus spp. in data-poor fisheries to be of a high priority (SC-CAMLR-XXIX, paragraphs 3.125 to 3.145). The use of different gear types for the implementation of a multi-Member research on   Dissostichus spp.  in East Antarctica (Divisions 58.4.1 and 58.4.2) carried out in the seasons 2011/12 - 2017/18  is a critical factor for their   efficiency and reliability. In the context of the discussion of the Scientific Committee (SC-CAMLR-XXXVII p.3.338-3.144) related to the methodical  problems and analysis issues of  the above said research   we propose the research program on Dissostichus spp by the  multi-vessels  in Divisions 58.4.1 and 58.4.2 for seasons 2019/20-2021/22 based on standardization of sampling longline gear  and survey design.
