Antarctic Krill Conservation Project

priorities

Our goal is to successfully urge the Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR) to enact a fishery management system for krill that not only maintains sufficient prey for krill predators but also allows for a sustainable level of growth in the fishery. The campaign has urged CCAMLR to enact the same management tools for the krill fishery that it requires for other fisheries, including strongly enforced catch limits. In addition, the campaign advocated for changes that will conserve krill as a food source for their predators and allow for the development of a sustainable krill fishery.
