The CCAMLR Ecosystem Monitoring Program (CEMP) uses indices derived from data on indicator species collected by standard methods in the three Integrated Study Regions of the Convention Area. Each year the Secretariat updates the standardised index values and provides a summary of trends and anomalies in these data. This report covers predator indices only. Data were submitted by 7 Members for 10 sites and 13 different CEMP parameters for the 2007/08 season. No data was submitted from Edmonson Point and Ross Island; however counts from aerial photographs taken at Ross Island for the previous five seasons are being undertaken. There has been a general decline in the number of parameters submitted from the monitoring sites.
