    Abstract

    Conservation Measure 91/02 (2004) affords protection of the Cape Shirreff CCAMLR Ecosystem Monitoring Program (CEMP) site. Cape Shirreff is also protected as ASPA 149 through the Antarctic Treaty. The management plans for Cape Shirreff are due for review by CCAMLR in 2009 and by the ATCM in 2010. Both plans recognize the importance of the CEMP site and associated scientific research and afford area protection.
