    Abstract

    CCAMLR Science provides a valuable mechanism for promoting the science undertaken in connection with CCAMLR and for raising CCAMLR’s profile within the international scientific community. However, in recent years there has been a decrease in the number of papers submitted to CCAMLR Science for their publication. Taking into account the review made by the CCAMLR Secretariat, the subsequent recommendation made by the Scientific Committee, and that the creation of marine protected areas (MPA) in the Area of the Convention have become one of the main issues currently debated in CCAMLR, Argentina and Chile propose the publication of a special volume of CCAMLR Science, addressing the issue of CCAMLR MPAs.
