    This paper summarises a review of the CCAMLR Marine Debris monitoring program and considers ways in which the current program could be modernised. It recommends that the Scientific Committee establish an Intersessional Correspondence Group on Marine Debris to review and revise the program, which would include defining its objectives, developing program materials, and developing an analytical approach that will allow quantification of marine debris levels across the Convention Area.
