Convention on the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources
The Convention on the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources was adopted on 20 May 1980 and entered into force on 7 April 1982. The principal goal is to preserve marine life and environmental integrity in and near Antartica. To achieve this goal, limitations are set to fishing and other similar activities in order to preserve the fisheries populations, to guarantee the proper functioning of the ecosystem and to minimize the threat of irreversible alterations of the ecosystem for the next 20-30 years to come.
