The aim of this paper is to review the management of the Ross Sea toothfish fishery and progress made under the 2014 medium-term research plan (MTRP). The paper focuses primarily on Antarctic toothfish, as catches of Patagonian toothfish are negligible, and covers Subarea 88.1 and Subarea 88.2 SSRUs 88.2A and B, including the linkages with the Amundsen Sea. We begin by summarising the management and operation of the fishery from 2014 to 2022, commencing when the last review ended. We then review progress made towards achieving the objectives of the 2014 MTRP.
During the intersessional Ross Sea Data Collection Plan workshop, the progress against the 2014 medium-term research plan was reviewed. This paper is an update of the draft provided to the workshop and contains recommendations provided during the workshop.
