    We propose revising several conservation measures at CCAMLR-42 to improve monitoring of the krill stocks and the vessels participating in the krill fisheries (CCAMLR-42/XX). One of these improvements is to update CM 10-03 (2019), Port inspections of fishing vessels carrying Antarctic marine living resources, to require Contracting Parties to inspect 100% of vessels carrying any Antarctic marine living resources, including krill or krill products.
