|Abstract: ||CCAMLR is a Convention for the conservation of living marine resources in the Antarctic that manages
fisheries taking into account the marine ecosystem. Targets for fishery are krill, toothfish, icefish, squids
and crabs. For that purpose, the Commission meets annually and decides upon Conservation measures. It
receives scientific advice from its Scientific Committee.
The Scientific Committee receives advice and input from its working groups on Ecosystem Monitoring
and Management (WG-EMM), on Fish Stock Assessment (WG-FSA), and on Incidental Mortality in
Antarctic Fisheries (WG-IMAF). There are also subgroups such as for Protected Areas, Joint Assessment
(JAG), Assessment Methods (WG-FSA-SAM), Fisheries Acoustics (WG-FSA-SFA), and others, that are
temporarily established to concentrate on some specific problems, as well as workshops on themes that
have to be discussed in more depths by specialists. It also runs the CCAMLR Ecosystem Monitoring
Program (CEMP). There are also surveys from Member countries, or coordinated surveys such as the
2000 survey on krill.
For better managing the living resources, the convention area is sub divided in areas corresponding to the
Atlantic, the Pacific and the Indian Ocean sectors, sub-areas and divisions.|
