    Abstract

    This paper proposes a representative system of marine protected areas (RSMPA) in the East Antarctica Planning Domain identified by the CCAMLR Worksop on Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) in 2011 (WS‐MPA‐11). It also proposes that the East Antarctica RSMPA be endorsed by the SC‐CAMLR and that it be recommended to the Commission as part of the commitment to delivering MPAs by 2012. This proposal is an updated version from 2010. It includes results from the workshop in France on MPAs in May 2011 and takes into account discussions at WS‐MPA‐11. This report is divided into three sections: (1) description of the RSMPA, (2) analysis of conservation values and trade‐offs for MPAs in the East Antarctica Planning Domain and (3) supporting materials providing further information underpinning the analyses and approach in general. If successful, the areas nominated in the RSMPA would be designated by individual conservation measures under the general Measure on MPAs as proposed in CCAMLR‐XXX/30.
