    In 2013 New Zealand and the USA submitted a draft research and monitoring plan to accompany a proposal for a Marine Protected Area in the Ross Sea region.  In this paper we describe new research projects planned or initiated since submission of that plan, to address priority research activities identified therein. We also identify new research proposals submitted in the past year that are also expected to address priority activities identified in the plan. All CCAMLR Members are encouraged to contribute to this list describing their own planned or ongoing research projects, and to engage in multi-Member collaboration toward the implementation of a genuinely multi-Member ecosystem research and monitoring programme in the Ross Sea region.
