Secretariat - Dates of other meetings and the Lunar New Year in 2023/2024
This paper is the best estimate of meeting dates for 2023-2024 for other RFMO-related meetings and the Lunar New Year. This is provided to assist Members in planning Commission meetings for 2023/2024.
Members are also asked to reflect on the timing of meetings and the access to the audit and Members Annual Reports (that are due February 28).
The current timing of Commission meetings does not allow for the most recent fishing year to be included in the CMR process. Options include maintaining the status quo, using an earlier reporting deadline (e.g., report due at least 6 weeks prior to TCC which would have meant a deadline of around January 31, 2023), or meet later in the year.
