Agenda Item 4.6.2 Application of Close-Kin-Mark-Recapture Methods (Project 100c)


Under the EU-funded Project 100c (Preparing WCP tuna fisheries for application of CKMR methods to resolve key stock assessment uncertainties), the CKMR feasibility and design study for South Pacific albacore is expected to be completed and presented to SC20, and scoping studies for Pacific bigeye and Southwest Pacific swordfish will be introduced at SC21

SC20 will review Project 100c's outcomes and, as needed, provide advice and recommendations on further research on the application of CKMR.
