On the Cover: Cover Background image: Iceberg. Photo by Jennifer Emery. Inset, middle: Field camp at Cape Shirreff, located on the north side of the South Shetland Islands, where foraging ecology and reproductive success of land-breeding krin predators, such as Antarctic fur seals and chinstrap penguins, are monitored as part of CCAMLR's ecosystem monitoring program. Photo by Michael Goebel. Inset, top and bottom: Crabeater seals, despite their name, prefer to eat Antarctic krill. They are likely the most abundant pinniped in the world (estimates vary widely but 10-15 million individuals is a reasonable number). As such their estimated consumption of krill exceeds that of all the baleen whales in the Southern Ocean. Photos by Derek Needham.
