Abstract

The Antarctic is one of the world's largest and most isolated wilderness areas. The
Antarctic krill is a small crustacean that is one of the most pivotal species in the
vulnerable Antarctic ecosystem. Accordingly, it is extremely important that the krill
is given adequate legal protection by the international regulatory and management
regime. The purpose of this thesis is to provide a comprehensive analysis of the
world's international legal regime in the context of the Antarctic krill. In particular,
this thesis examines the adequacy of the current legal regime to provide effective
management of krill and other Antarctic. marine species in light of the problem of
illegal, unregulated and unreported fishing in the Southern Ocean. The thesis
examines both legal theory and practical management in the specific context of the
Antarctic krill. The aim of the thesis is to recommend an appropriate regulatory
framework for the Antarctic krill in light of the "precautionary approach" to fisheries
management, given the krill's importance to the Antarctic ecosystem.
