Antarctica: Doing business & staying in touch

Doing business in Antarctica


Scientific research is the key undertaking in Antarctica, with the region’s limited economic activity in fishing and tourism being based abroad. Fishing occurs in the areas designated by the Convention of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR), although unregulated fishing is a growing problem. Tourism numbers have been estimated at around 40,000 per year in recent years.
