From 2017, the Government of South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands (GSGSSI) requires 100% observer coverage on krill vessels fishing in FAO area 48.3.

MRAG provide the observer on the Chilean flagged krill trawler Antarctic Endeavour. 

The role of the observer is to collect data on target and bycatch species as well as monitor interactions with birds and marine mammals.  Reports and data are provided to CCAMLR which provides information to the Scientific Committee so the likely impacts on the environment can be assessed.
