    Résumé

    Relatively little ecological information is available for the South Sandwich Islands, so the diversity of information available to determine potential SSMU boundaries is limited. Nevertheless, a suggested SSMU is proposed, based on the foraging distance of the most abundant land-based consumer of krill breeding on the islands, the chinstrap penguin. The proposed SSMU represents a single ecological entity with no internal boundaries. It is based on the best information currently available.
