During discussions on the Ross Sea region marine protected area (RSRMPA) at CCAMLR XXXV in October 2016, it was noted that the implementation of Conservation Measure (CM) 91-05 would require revisions to a number of existing CMs (see paragraph 8.39 of the report of CCAMLR XXXV). CM 91-05 itself contains an obligation to revise CMs 41-09 and 41-10 (see paragraph 28 of CM 91-05).
We describe the proposed changes in part 1 of this paper, with an explanation of each revision. Part 2 of this paper contains copies of all of the relevant CMs with changes edit-tracked, taken from the Schedule of Conservation Measures in Force 2016/17.
New Zealand and the United States recommend that the Commission adopt the proposed changes at its 2017 meeting.
