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 researches on Dissostichus spp. in the East Antarctic region (Divisions 58.4.1 and 58.4.2) carried out in the seasons 2011/12 - 2017/18 is a critical factor for efficiency and reliability of these multi-Member researches. In the context of the discussion of the Scientific Committee (SC-CAMLR-XXXVII p.3.338-3.144; SC-CAMLR-XXXVIII p. 318, 3.119; SC-CAMLR-XXXIX p.4.10) we propose the research program on Dissostichus spp. by the multi-vessels in Divisions 58.4.1 and 58.4.2 from 2021/22 to 2023/24 based on standardized sampling longline gear and survey stratified design.
