    Abstract

    In this paper, ASOC draws CCAMLR’s attention to the most pressing issues in relation to the ecosystem-based management of the krill fishery, including the adoption of a conservation measure that ensures systematic scientific observer coverage, the development of a coordinated research plan to address key scientific uncertainties at the SSMU level in Area 48, and the consideration of feedback management approaches in this Area as soon as possible. In addition, ASOC maintains that CCAMLR should take precautionary measures to prevent concentration of catches in coastal areas as the fishery approaches the interim catch limit in Subareas 48.1-48.4, and that a standardized method for green weight krill catch reporting should be developed and required.
