At the decadal reviews of the Southern Ocean Sanctuary (SOS) in 2004 and 2016 the Scientific Committee recommended that the SOS should have a management plan that linked objectives to measurable or identifiable outcomes. This recommendation was endorsed by the Commission. In order to progress this recommendation, the authors have developed a draft management plan for consideration by the Scientific and Conservation Committees.
