What we do

What we do

  • We collect and distribute information between members and CCAMLR.
  • We meet regularly to discuss matters relevant to the krill industry and CCAMLR
  • We promote research for sustainable harvest of Antarctic krill
  • We strive to promote the work of CCAMLR and emphasise the steps that are being taken to ensure the sustainability of the krill fishery

ARK coordinates and cooperates with CCAMLR on the provision of research and information on krill, and the krill fishery and its impact on the ecosystem, with the aim of contributing to CCAMLR’s work on managing the krill fishery sustainably. ARK members are currently conducting extensive scientific activities on board their vessels. Lists of these activities may be downloaded from the links below.

CCAMLR scientists who are interested in this research should contact ARK directly at info@ark-krill.org.  Scientists are also invited to suggest the types of research they would like to see being conducted on the fishing vessels.
