    Abstract

    CCAMLR has endorsed the use of the Risk Assessment framework to apportion the krill catch limits in order to minimise the risk of the fishery to krill dependent predators. We plan to apply the risk assessment framework across Subarea 48.1 at various spatial and temporal scales, in order to identify the most appropriate way to spread the catch from the fishery. The risk assessment framework requires data layers describing the distribution and krill consumption by krill-dependent predators. This paper describes the progress to-date in developing the data layers to input into the risk assessment framework.
