    The CCAMLR MPA Information Repository (CMIR) was designed to provide a database for Members to upload, review, track, and report on projects relating to MPAs; enable a more holistic and integrative approach towards ecosystem research associated MPAs; and provide key stakeholders and the public with access to data, information and management measures related to the ecosystems associated with MPAs. The objective of this paper is to summarise the information submitted to the CMIR to date by Members, and in particular on the Ross Sea region Marine Protected Area (RSRMPA) following requirements in CM 91-05, paragraph 15. Compiled activity reports by Members are included as Supplemental Documents. In addition, we identify potential revisions to the CMIR’s structure to better align it with its intended use.
