May 28-June 1, 2007

Quetin, L.B., R.M. Ross and M. Vernet. Linkage Between Antarctic Krill (Euphausia superba) and Primary Production. 4th International Zooplankton Production Symposium.

Krill workshop May 28:
Hiroshima, Japan

May 21-24, 2007

Ross, R.M., and L.B. Quetin. The Lenfest Workshop “Identifying and resolving key uncertainties in management models for krill fisheries”.

(goal = to provide CCAMLR with independent advice on how Small-Scale Management Units (SSMUs) might be used to minimize local impacts of krill fishing on krill predators, including consideration of what science might be needed to improve their use for management purposes. Convenors will write summary report. RnL presented their view of how the wAP ecosystem functions as the group discussed differences among the best-studied site (LTER, AMLR, South Georgia):
