    Abstract

    This paper reports on the various activities conducted by or involving SCAR that relate directly to CCAMLR or are of potential interest to CCAMLR. This includes a report on the SCAR XXIX Delegates Meeting and Open Science Conference held in Hobart in July 2006, progress with the new Evolution and Biodiversity in the Antarctic (EBA) and the Census of Antarctic Marine Life (CAML) projects. CAML has been developing links with the CCAMLR 2008 IPY Survey. The new SCAR-MarBIN data portal continues to gather information on marine biodiversity in Antarctic and SCAR has established a new Action Group on Continuous Plankton Recorder research CPRAG. Both SCAR-MarBIN and CPRAG can provide useful data for CCAMLR. The activities of the Expert Groupss of Birds and Seals are summarised, as well as new research on Ocean-Ice-Atmosphere Systems and interactions. SCAR conducted its third international workshop on marine acoustic studies at the University of Cadiz, Spain in January 2006. A summary is provided in this report. A complete report of the Cadiz workshop is provided in the supplementary SCAR information paper CCAMLR-XXV/BG/23 “Report on the activities of the Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (SCAR) 2005/06.”
