The combined impacts of a changing climate and concentrated coastal fishing are having negative impacts on krill predators and Southern Ocean ecosystems, but the Commission for CAMLR   has the mandate and opportunity to lead the world in developoing precautionary ecosystem-based management for the Antarctic krill fishery. ENGOs are supporting primary research and technical workshops in 2018 and 2019 to inform the development of ecosystem-based krill fishery management frameworks, Outcomes of the krill workshops will be considered by the CCAMLR scientific community prior to the revision of the conservation measure governing the Antarctic krill fishery scheduled for 2021.
