WP053: Measures to Reduce the Risk of Non-native Species Introductions to the Antarctic Region associated with Fresh Foods
Following discussions at CEP on the issue of introduction of non-native species to Antarctica, SCAR has developed simple practical measures to reduce the risk of introductions of non-native species into the Antarctic Treaty area, via fresh foods. SCAR would welcome comments on these guidelines (at Annex A to this paper) as the basis for the development and eventual adoption of formal CEP guidelines via the Non-native Species Intersessional Contact Group.
