    ASOC submitted four background papers to CCAMLR-40, highlighting ongoing challenges to krill fishery management, marine protected areas and climate change. Throughout the intersessional period, ASOC and its member groups conducted a variety of activities supporting Antarctic conservation, including participation in online academic conferences, workshops, symposia and webinars, and making contributions to a range of research projects. CCAMLR must respond to the ongoing climate and biodiversity crisis and take immediate action to achieve the long-term conservation of the Southern Ocean.
