In 2015, the Commission identified eleven tasks (Tasks i to xi) for ongoing consideration by the Intersessional Correspondence Group – Sustainable Financing (CCAMLR-XXXIV, paragraph 4.5). In early 2016, noting specific direction from the Commission regarding additional consideration of the administrative component of notification fees (see CCAMLR-XXXV/11), the ICG-SF, using the Commission’s website e-group facility, identified tasks for consideration during the 2015/16 intersessional period. Task (ii) was selected as one of those tasks to be started during 2016. This paper presents the results of work undertaken during 2016 in relation to this task.
SCAF is invited to review this report. It is also invited to provide advice and recommendations in relation to any future work that might be considered appropriate in relation to the economics of harvests associated with CCAMLR fisheries.
