This file has a .pdf extensionProposal for Ross Sea MPA
Author(s): COMMISSION FOR THE CONSERVATION OF ANTARCTIC MARINE LIVING RESOURCES

The delegations of New Zealand and the United States propose the establishment by the Commission
for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources􀀃(Commission or CCAMLR) of a marine
protected area (MPA) in the Ross Sea Region (“Ross Sea Region Marine Protected Area”). In
recognition of the exceptional ecological value and scientific importance of the Ross Sea Region, our
delegations propose to establish this MPA to conserve living marine resources; maintain ecosystem
structure and function; protect vital ecosystem processes and areas of ecological significance; and
establish reference areas that will promote scientific research. This proposal is consistent with
Conservation Measure 91-04 (2011) and the scientific conclusions and processes, reviewed by the
Scientific Committee, from which the United States and New Zealand developed their original MPA
scenarios for the Ross Sea Region. This proposal was last submitted to CCAMLR as CCAMLRXXXI/
16 Rev. 1 on October 29, 2012, during the 31st Meeting of the Commission. Except where noted
in strikethrough/bold, the text of the proposed Conservation Measure is the same as that submitted on
October 29, 2012. The delegations of New Zealand and the United States appreciate the many
comments received from other Members on proposals for a Ross Sea Region MPA, including at
CCAMLR XXX, XXXI and intersessionally. We look forward to working together with Members in
Bremerhaven to achieve consensus to establish this MPA.
