The management procedure used to recommend total allowable catches (TACs) and bycatches (TABs) for

sardine and anchovy in South African waters is currently being revised. Given the extensive testing desired

for this new management procedure, which among other factors includes taking account of the possibility of

multiple sardine stocks and of the impact of the recommended catches on penguins, a final version of OMP-

13 is not yet available. However, the Small Pelagic Scientific Working Group has agreed a revised version of

“Interim OMP-13v2” (de Moor and Butterworth 2013), called “Interim OMP-13v3” for use in December 2013

for calculating recommended initial TAC/Bs for 2014. The revised management procedure is expected to be

finalised and agreed during 2014. This document provides details of “Interim OMP-13v3” only in respect of

differences from “Interim OMP-13v2”.
