Figure-H5.88.0

Figure H5.88.0 shows the boundaries of the Antarctic Pacific (Major Fishing Area 88) corresponding to the CCAMLR Area for statistical purposes.

A description of the area and its subareas follows:

All marine waters of the Antarctic Pacific bounded by a line commencing from a point on the coast of Antarctica between Oates Land and George V Land at 150°00'E longitude thence due north to 60°00'S latitude; thence running due east along this parallel to 70°00'W longitude; thence due south to a point at 70°00'W longitude on the northern coast of Alexander Island; thence along the east coast of the island to a point on the south coast at 70°00'W longitude; thence across the George VI Sound to a point at 70°00'W longitude on the coast of Antarctica at Palmer Land; thence due west along the coast of Antarctica to the point of departure.

Eastern Ross Sea (Subarea 88.1)
The waters bounded by a line commencing from a point on the coast of Antarctica between Oates Land and George V Land at 150°00'E longitude; thence due north to 60°00'S latitude; thence due east to 170°00'W longitude; thence due south to Dufek coast in Antarctica; thence running in a westerly direction along the coast of Antarctica to the point of departure.

Western Ross Sea (Subarea 88.2)
The waters bounded by a line commencing from a point on Dufek coast in Antarctica at 170°00'W longitude; thence due north to 60°00'S latitude; thence running due east along this parallel to 105°00'W longitude; thence due south to Walgreen coast in Antarctica; thence in a westerly direction along the coast of Antarctica to the point of departure.

Amundsen Sea (Subarea 88.3)
The waters bounded by a line commencing from a point on Walgreen coast in Antarctica at 105°00'W longitude; thence due north to 60°00'S latitude; thence due east to 70°00'W longitude; thence due south to a point on the northeast coast of Alexander Island at 70°00'W longitude; thence along the east coast of this island to a point on the south coast at 70°00'W longitude; thence across the George VI Sound to a point on the coast of Antarctica in Palmer Land at 70°00'W longitude; thence due west along the coast of Antarctica to the point of departure.
