    ASOC has submitted six background papers to CCAMLR-41. These papers highlight several key issues for CCAMLR, including: management of the krill fishery, the designation of marine protected areas, decision making processes in CCAMLR, and guidelines adopted by the International Maritime Organisation for fishing vessels operating in polar waters. During the intersessional period, ASOC and its member organizations have participated in a variety of activities to support Antarctic conservation, such as funding scientific research, facilitating opportunities for discussion between CCAMLR stakeholders, and organizing numerous educational and outreach activities.
