    CCAMLR has a history of leadership in conservation and management, yet the outcomes of both performance reviews have demonstrated that there is significant room for improvement. Thus, ASOC recommends that as CCAMLR reviews the outcomes of the second Performance Review, it also considers how to implement outstanding recommendations from the first Performance Review. Implementation should take into account recommendations on the same issues from the second Performance Review as well as recent CCAMLR proposals and discussions on the issues. Key actions for CCAMLR from ASOC’s perspective are to create a representative system of MPAs, to refine compliance categories, to implement additional precautionary management measures in the krill fishery, and to support the implementation of a climate change response work plan (CCRWP).
