    The CCAMLR Scholarship Scheme received one application in 2022, from Mauricio Mardones (Chile) and supported by mentors in the USA. The proposed area of research aims to analyse the population dynamics and exploitation status of Antarctic krill (Euphausia superba) in the Antarctic Peninsula through integrated stock assessment models. The scholarship review panel welcomed the well-suited and timely research topic from a well-qualified candidate and supported the nomination of Mauricio for a CCAMLR scientific scholarship. The panel also noted the extension of earlier scholarship awards due to COVID-19 constraints will result in additional scholarship expenditure in 2022 and 2023.
