SG-ASAM was established by the Scientific Committee as an expert group to examine issues relating to hydroacoustic surveys of Antarctic krill. Each of the meetings of the sub-group have had specific terms of reference from the Scientific Committee as a result of a specific issue where expert evaluation of acoustic techniques has been required.
In 2019 it became a full working group: WG-ASAM (SC-CAMLR-38, paragraph 2.36 and CCAMLR-38, paragraph 5.6).
The current Co-conveners are Dr Sophie Fielding (United Kingdom) and Dr Xinliang Wang (China).
A list of the meetings (including reports) is available here.
