Ecosystem Effects and Mitigation of the Toothfish Fishery

NIWA fisheries scientist Dr Stuart Hanchet describes the guiding principles that CCAMLR (the Convention on the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Life) applies to the Antarctic toothfish fishery.

He explains measures we are using to address the potential effects of the fishery on the Ross Sea ecosystem, and how we are developing ecosystem models to assess these effects.
