Each such CCM shall also include in its annual reports for subsequent years any changes it has made to its required mitigation measures or technical specifications for those measures.
South of 30South 1. CCMs shall require their longline vessels fishing south of 30S, to use at least two of these three measures: weighted branch lines, night setting and tori lines. Table 1 does not apply south of 30South. See Annex 1 for specifications of these measures. North of 23North 2. CCMs shall require their large-scale longline vessels of 24 meters or more in overall length fishing north of 23N, to use at least two of the mitigation measures in Table 1, including at least one from Column A.
