The AMLR team is a group of scientists dedicated to preserving natural resources in Antarctica for future generations.
Established in 1982 in response to concerns that increasing krill fishing activities could have a deleterious impact on the Southern Ocean ecosystem, the Convention for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR) is an international treaty between 25 nations that seeks to manage Antarctic fisheries with the goal of preserving species diversity and stability of the entire Antarctic marine ecosystem.
