    THE APPLICATION OF CONSERVATION MEASURE 21-03 (NOTIFICATIONS OF INTENT TO PARTICIPATE IN A FISHERY FOR EUPHAUSIA SUPERBA) TO CONTRACTING PARTIES

    Request Meeting Document
    Document Number:
    CCAMLR-XXVII/37
    Author(s):
    Delegation of Australia
    Abstract

    Australia is encouraged by the willingness of Members to support the orderly and precautionary development of the krill fishery as it continues to expand. Currently Contracting Parties as well as Members are able to participate in krill fisheries. This is different to the approach taken by the Commission for new and exploratory fisheries as only Members can participate in these fisheries. To ensure a consistent approach to the management of CCAMLR fisheries (which CCAMLR is currently seeking to achieve) and the best regulation possible to achieve the orderly and precautionary development of the krill fishery, Australia recommends that Conservation Measure 21-03 be amended so that it only applies to Members.
