    Norway is in the process of extending its monitoring efforts in the area around South Orkneys by deploying acoustic moorings in a commercially exploited area. Data gathered from the moorings will be used to parametrise models, in order to gain better understanding of the interaction between ocean physics and behaviour in driving krill biomass variation in the area.
