    The CCAMLR Ecosystem Monitoring Programme has been developing a techniques-which might detect short term declines in land-based predator performance (eg. reproductive performance) that may be attributable to loss of prey through fishing activities. The principal fishery in the CCAMLR area is the krill fishery and this paper examines ways in which the information being obtained from the Ecosystem Monitoring Programme might be incorporated into a feedback management strategy for this fishery.
