    It is shown that   the proposals for the establishment of an MPA in the Weddell Sea should be complemented by information on the commercial potential and future rational use for dominant fish species and krill  in the Subarea 48.5 and 48, 6.  

    The areas for fishing activity and protection areas  in the Weddell Sea  should be managed by separate Conservation Measures.
