The 9th Meeting of the SPRFMO Commission (COMM9) was held from 26 January to 5 February 2021 (NZDT). The 8th Meeting of the Finance and Administration Committee (FAC8) took place on 22 and 28 January 2021 and the 8th Meeting of the Compliance and Technical Committee (CTC8) took place over the 21 January to 1 February 2021 period (3 days). 

Given the extraordinary circumstances of this meeting, the fact that the meeting was held by virtual means, and the lack of time, the Commission decided to adopt, prior to the close of its meeting, a Record of Decisions taken for the purposes of Article 17(1) of the Convention.

The Commission also decided to adopt its meeting report through correspondence following the conclusion of the 9th Annual Meeting.
