    We invite Members to collaborate with the U.S. AMLR Program to conduct a multi-national, empirical study of krill flux through the Bransfield Strait and across the continental shelf surrounding Astrolabe Island. We propose to conduct this study with 20+ acoustically instrumented moorings. Collaboration could include refining study design, deploying and recovering moorings, conducting separate acoustic surveys to estimate krill standing stock within the study area, and, ultimately, data analysis and synthesis.
