This report summarizes the spatial layers developed to date to support the development of the Weddell Sea Marine Protected Area Phase 2. We link these spatial layers to the conservation objectives complementary to the Weddell Sea Marine Protected Area Phase 1 and preliminary specific conservation objectives for the Weddell Sea Marine Protected Area Phase 2. We include a summary of further considerations from expert discussions at and since the WSMPA Phase 2 International Scientific Workshop (digital) 10-12 May 2021. A summary report of this workshop is provided as supplementary material.
