Domain 7 GIS Data - 2011

Data used to inform planning of marine protected areas in Domain 7 (East Antarctica) were compiled into GIS shape files. Submitted shape files include:

* Proposed East Antarctic Marine Protected Areas
* East Antarctic bioregional provinces
* Pelagic regionalisation for East Antarctica
* Benthic regionalisation for East Antarctica
* Australian and French data on Adelie penguin (Pygoscelis adeliae) colonies
* Foraging kernels (incubation, guard and chick-rearing stages combined) for all major clusters of Adelie penguin (Pygoscelis adeliae) colonies in Australian and French territories
* Locations of Emperor penguin (Aptenodytes forsteri) colonies in East Antarctica
* Predicted and actual densities (certain and probable) for crabeater seals (Lobodon carcinophagus) for East Antarctica
* Predicted density and distribution (certain and probable) of leopard seals (Hydrurga leptonyx) in East Antarctica
* White-chinned petrel (Procellaria aequinoctialis) 75% UD (incubation and chick-rearing combined) with provinces and pelagic MPAs
* White-chinned petrel (Procellaria aequinoctialis) 95% UD (incubation and chick-rearing combined) with provinces and pelagic MPAs
* Total blue whale (Balaeonoptera musculus) catch data from 1930-1963 for all East Antarctica
* Krill density data from BROKE voyage transects (indicative per 1000m3)
* Krill density data from BROKE WEST voyage transects (indicative per 1000m3)
* Ecoregions identified by Koubbi et al. (2011) overlaid on the benthic regionalisation

Fishery catch and effort data used in the planning process were also submitted and are available by request from the Secretariat according to the Rules for Access and Use of CCAMLR Data.
