  • Description:
    "The 2009/10 U.S. Antarctic Marine Living Resources (U.S. AMLR) field season continued a long-term series of studies of the Antarctic Peninsula ecosystem, designed to support the conservation and management of Antarctic marine fisheries by the Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR). The U.S. AMLR Program is managed and implemented by the Antarctic Ecosystem Research Division (AERD). The field research is used to describe the Antarctic ecosystem as a function of the relationships between Antarctic krill (Euphausia superba), their predators and the physical and biological oceanographic conditions of the marine environment. Two working hypotheses have been proposed: 1) krill predators respond to changes in the availability of their food source, and 2) the distribution of krill is affected by both physical and biological aspects of their habitat"--Intro.
