Today, the IOTC 24th Annual Meeting started in Seychelles. The five-day event is being held online and will end on November 6. Each day there will be two-hour conferences starting at noon in Seychelles (8 am in the UK and 7 pm in Canberra, Australia).

The most anticipated debate will center around the report of the Scientific Committee. The review of the 2019 SC22 Report and overview of the status of the IOTC stocks will be briefly presented by the Chair who also will manage any subsequent interventions. This will be followed by the committee’s recommendations. The agenda for the event can be downloaded from this link.
