This paper contains the revised version of the proposed draft Conservation Measure establishing a Marine Protected Area in Domain 1 (Western Antarctic Peninsula and South Scotia Arc) as presented in last year’s paper CC-CCAMLR-XXXVII/31.
The revised version of the D1MPA proposal addresses outstanding issues as raised by Members during the 37th Scientific Committee Meeting (Hobart, 2018). The rationale underlying the modifications in the D1MPA Model, aimed to achieve conservation objectives agreed during the two CCAMLR International Workshops (2012 and 2015) while also seeking to adequately consider the krill fishery distribution. A background paper with the rationale of the changes has also been presented (CCAMLR-38/BG/22).
For clarity a clean version of the revised Conservation Measure is presented, followed by a track-change version which is contained as an Appendix.
