South Africans have been deployed as CCAMLR observers on vessels from a number of flag states. In some cases the observers have retained the otoliths that were collected and deposited them at the Branch Fisheries Management, Dept Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (DAFF) in Cape Town. As a result, South Africa holds otoliths collected from the CCAMLR area by vessels from five different flag states. This note summarises South Africa’s holdings of otoliths collected within the CCAMLR region by species, area, vessel and year.
