This proposal for penguin island closures in 2021 matches that of the proposal of FISHERIES/2020/OCT/SWGPEL/ 102, but considering the 2021 year only.
This proposal for the closure or opening of a 20km radius around Robben, Dassen, St Croix and Bird islands to purse seine fishing during 2021 is extracted from the multi‐year proposal by de Moor (2020a). That proposal was primarily based on the summary of both sets of GLMM analyses available to the SWG‐PEL, which were tabled and noted in de Moor (2020b).
