In light of the recently concluded annual meeting of the Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Living Marine Resources, a panel of leaders from the Commission will consider current challenges for fisheries management and prospects for establishing new marine protected areas in the Southern Ocean.

Event hosted by the Polar Institute at Wilson Center: Since its inception in 2017, the Polar Institute has become a premier forum for discussion and policy analysis of Arctic and Antarctic issues, and is known in Washington, DC and elsewhere as the Arctic Public Square.
