    Abstract

    A proposal for a Marine Protected Area in the Ross Sea region has been submitted to CCAMLR and iteratively updated since 2012 consistent with Scientific Committee advice.  The purpose of this paper is to: 1)  identify previously submitted scientific documents supporting MPA planning in the Ross Sea region; 2) highlight relevant Scientific Committee advice to support or modify previous iterations of this proposal; and 3) update relevant maps, figures and analyses from previously submitted scientific papers to reflect the boundaries of the current MPA proposal and with updated fishery data, to assist evaluation of the current proposal.
