    Abstract

    With the intent of stimulating discussion, we present four options for subdividing the precautionary catch limit of krill for Area 48 into the small-scale management units (SSMU) adopted at CCAMLR-XXI. The first three are static allocations: the first is proportional to estimated predator demand in each SSMU; the second is proportional to the estimated standing stock of krill in each SSMU; and the third is proportional to the standing stock less predator demand in each SSMU. The fourth option is a dynamic allocation based on land-based predator monitoring conducted just prior to or early in the fishing season.
