Abstract: According to the European Commission, particular attention is needed to secure the sus-tainable exploitation of deep-sea stocks in view of their vulnerable nature. For many stocks, knowledge and data remain insufficient for scientific analysis (COM (2007) 30 final), which is also reflected in recent TAC and Quota setting. Moreover, according to the European Commission, the poor state of key deep-sea stocks and the lack of scientific data clearly demonstrates the need for an improved management framework for deep-sea fisheries, as proposed by the Commission in 2012 (see IP/12/813). Based on recent research by CSIRO Australia, using close-kin analysis, a method that has particular po-tential for generating abundance for the management of Southern Bluefin Tuna, utility for transfer to deep-sea species will be assessed. In particular a range of genetic tech-niques and their utility for close-kin mark-recapture applications will be evaluated with respect to feasibility and utility in the context of yielding scientific advice implemented under the remit of the CFP.
