    Abstract

    In 2016 the Commission adopted Conservation Measure (CM) 91-05, establishing the Ross Sea region Marine Protected Area. This paper updates the research and monitoring activities conducted by New Zealand relevant to the Ross Sea region Marine Protected Area, as encouraged by CM 91-05 paragraph 16(i)–(ii). Annex B of this Conservation Measure specifies the RSrMPA specific objectives and the Management Plan. In addition, Annex C specifies the Priority Elements for Scientific Research and Monitoring, including research and monitoring priorities and research and monitoring questions that should be addressed. We also recall the objectives of the RSrMPA and the research questions for research and monitoring for the RSrMPA.
