With the recognition that CCAMLR tagging programmes are used for abundance estimation of toothfish and skates, tagging operations need to be appropriately supported through documentation, training, and supplies. This paper reviews how tagging programme information could be effectively organised, provides a template training module for observers and vessel crew, and makes recommendations to update tagging protocols and to create a tagging checklist for use at the tagging station.
