SG-ASAM are invited to consider provide further recommendations for improving this fishing vessel data collection program and provide advice on
- the timing and frequency for conducting acoustic transects;
- the methods for the data transmission to the Secretariat including the use of EchoExplore to provide a meta-data catalogue of the data and
- whether to have acoustic data transferred to the Secretariat as complete (raw) acoustic data files for processing and/or analysis products (e.g. from the EchoViewR protocol agreed at SG-ASAM).
