Goods news emerge from AWR for those involved in Antarctic commercial fishing, and NGO’s concerned on how these operations impact Antarctica’s wildlife.
The AWR (The Antarctic Wildlife Research Fund) facilitates and promotes research on the Antarctic ecosystem, to ensure a good management of all Antarctic natural resources, whose ecosystem is uniquely dependent on Antarctic krill (Euphausia superba).
AWR’s Science Advisory Group (SAG) evaluated 8 scientific research proposals and on September 19th, AWR’s Board decided which projects will be funded for its current research tour. One of them goes to “Rapid unsupervised automated Krill density estimation from fishing vessels (Rapid-Krill)”. – http://www.antarcticfund.org/new-blog-1/2017/10/2/antarctic-wildlife-research-fund-awr-announces-grants-recipient-for-the-third-call-for-proposals
