    Resumen

    In this paper we consider whether the CCAMLR fishing season for Antarctic krill should start at a time of year that is based upon ecological events, rather than upon a date that is convenient for management. We review data on the breeding phenology of predators, and use data from the CCAMLR Statistical Bulletin (Version 28) to explore whether there are times of year that would reduce the potential for competition between land-based krill-eating predators and the fishery.
