Figure-H5.58.0

Figure H5.58.0 shows the boundaries of the Antarctic and Southern Indian Ocean (Major Fishing Area 58) corresponding to the CCAMLR Area for statistical purposes.

A description of the area and its subareas, divisions and subdivisions follows:

All marine waters of the Antarctic and Southern Indian Ocean bounded by a line commencing from a point at longitude 30°00'E on Princess Ragnhild coast in Antarctica; thence due north to 45°00'S latitude; thence due east to 80°00'E longitude; thence due south to 55°00'S latitude; thence running due east along this parallel to 150°00'E longitude; thence due south to the coast of Antarctica between Oates Land and George V Land; thence running in a westerly direction along the coast of Antarctica to the point of departure.
