    A research proposal to continue the southern Ross Sea subadult toothfish survey is presented. The survey will focus on estimating relative abundance in the core strata (A, B, C) in SSRUs 88.1 J and 88.1L. It will also carry out 15 exploratory sets in a newly defined stratum K in Terra Nova Bay. Survey timing and methods will remain the same as in previous years, and the number of sets will be retained at a total of 60 sets. A nominal catch limit of 68 tonnes, to be taken from the shelf catch limit for the 2014/15 fishing year is requested for the survey.
