What an Antarctic Marine Living Resource permit covers
New Zealanders who want to take marine life from the Convention Area in the Southern Ocean must get an Antarctic Marine Living Resource (AMLR) permit. The area is regulated by the Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR).
