    In this paper, COLTO and ASOC highlight important enforcement and compliance actions undertaken since CCAMLR XXXV and recommend further steps that CCAMLR can take to demonstrate leadership in compliance and enforcement as well as in environmental protection, including additional regulations for transhipments in the Convention Area; tightening legal loopholes for those involved in IUU fishing; implementing a system of satellite monitoring; supporting collaborations between industry and science; contributing to Interpol’s Project Scale; and considering ways to reduce the emissions produced by CCAMLR meetings.
