    A collaborative initiative to examine Antarctic toothfish (Dissosticus mawsoni) movement and habitat preference is being developed to support the research and monitoring within the proposed Ross Sea Region Marine Protected Area.  The objective is to deploy mark-report pop-off (mrPAT) tags and pop-up archival (MiniPAT) tags on fish within the General Protection Zone (GPZ) and Special Research Zone (SRZ) as set out in the Ross Sea Region MPA proposal (CCAMLR-XXXIV/29). Members with fishing vessels who may be fishing in these proposed areas during the 2015/16 and 2016/17 fishing seasons are invited to participate in this research.
