With thanks to the financial contribution of China, the CCAMLR Secretariat welcomes Kai Huang (China) and Natalia Perez (USA) as part of the CCAMLR international internship program. Mr Huang and Ms Perez were selected from a competitive pool of applicants for the 2023 program.
Mr Huang is working with the Science team to study how the Secretariat processes and error-checks krill fishery data to improve data quality and in the process learn how the Secretariat databases store vessel and observer data.
Ms Perez is working with the Fisheries Monitoring and Compliance team to investigate the feasibility and potential structure of an electronic catch documentation system (e-CDS) for krill, to aid in monitoring the krill fishery and tracking krill products in the marketplace.
Both are great additions to the Secretariat team and wished an enjoyable and educational stay in Hobart.
