Project Summary:
Competition between fisheries and predators is a global conservation issue and mitigating this requires an ecosystem approach to fisheries management. The South Georgia krill fishery is restricted to winter, but information about krill stock dynamics and predator foraging during winter are sparse. This project addresses this gap by: (i) quantifying the bundance and distribution of krill and (ii) assessing predator distribution - during the winter in the fishery area. The project outcomes will enable ecosystem-based management of the krill fishery
