First Day Cover Sustainable food - Toothfish

South Georgia & the South Sandwich Islands still play an important part in providing food resources. The Government has three sustainably managed world-class fisheries, all certified by the Marine Stewardship Council, the largest being toothfish which has an average recertification score of over 96%. It is recognised as being among the world’s most sustainable and best managed. Additionally, the entire South Georgia and South Sandwich Islands maritime zone is covered by conservation measures under the Convention on the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR). Established in 1982 CCAMLR protects the oceans around Antarctica from over exploitation and damage by fisheries. GSGSSI have a proud record of not only adopting the CCAMLR conservation measures, but extending them. To further enhance the protection of our maritime zone in 2012 the Government announced the formation of one of the world’s largest Marine Protected Areas. Since then protection has been extended to 1.24 million square kilometres. Within this zone, fishing is heavily regulated not only to ensure healthy fish stocks, but also to ensure food availability to the higher predators such as the seabirds, seals and whales.
