CCAMLR (Convention for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources) is the important component in ATS (Antarctic Treaty System), guiding and monitoring the marine living resources development and conservation at the Antarctic. With a review of the 4-decade history of CCAMLR development, a CCAMLR development projection is conducted to assess how resilient CCAMLR is and whether CCAMLR is resilient enough to encounter the future challenges. To explore how CCAMLR development interacts with the ATS resilience, two case studies are to be conducted. One is the regime-making process for Antarctic marine protected area (MPA) and how this process enhances the resilience of MPA regime. The other is the development of krill fishery at the Antarctic and how the fishery development interacts with the CCAMLR development.
Key words: CCAMLR; ATS; resilience; MPA; Krill fishery
