A draft conservation measure for an East Antarctic Marine Protected Area (EAMPA) has been under consideration by the Commission since 2012. This paper presents a revised conservation measure articulating changes, including feedback provided by members, which continue to improve the proposal. The paper provides greater clarity on the proposal by explaining how existing conservation measures create zones within the proposed EAMPA where different activities can occur, and includes supporting explanatory material. The conservation measure for an East Antarctic MPA, at Attachment A, is recommended for adoption.
