AIM: Management of competition with predators is an important consideration for fisheries, particularly within marine protected areas (MPAs) where conservation isa primary objective. We aimed to test whether static no-take zones within a large, sustainable-use MPA prevented overlap between gentoo penguins and a krill fishery during two winters with contrasting prey fields.LOCATION: South Georgia, Southwest Atlantic Ocean.METHOD: We used satellite tracking (N = 16, June–September 2018) to describe gentoo penguin movements and distribution and quantified their overlap with the MPA’s no-take zone (NTZ) and the krill fishing grounds. DNA metabarcoding of scats (N = 220, April–September 2018) was used to quantify diet.RESULTS: When krill were at moderate densities and evenly distributed in 2001, gentoo penguins would have spent all of their time within the 12 NM NTZ, but when availability was low in 2018, they spent 46.3% of their time outside the NTZ and 9.6% within the krill fishing grounds. The extension of the NTZ to 30 km in response to this finding would have produced a 14.9% increase in protection for penguins anddisplaced 4% of fishery hauls. Gentoo penguin diet comprised 25.8% krill, which is lower than in the late 1980s but more than in 2009.MAIN CONCLUSIONS: Gentoo penguins extend their foraging range when krill is scarce, which increases the potential for spatial overlap with the krill fishery during periods of nutritional stress. Current regulations allow for expansion of both extent and catches by the krill fishery and, should this occur, gentoo penguins may face heightened risks from competition. A dynamic ocean management framework, thatextends closed areas in response to near real-time data on penguin movements and krill density estimates, may reduce the potential for competition in this sustainable useMPA while allowing a profitable krill fishery.

St. Kitts and Nevis track and field stalwart, Kim Collins, has announced his retirement from the sport. Collins, 41, ended his run by pulling out of the 60-metre semi-finals at the IAAF World Indoor Championships in Birmingham, England. The former World 100-metre champion, had, in the morning, finished third in his heat, clocking 6.77 seconds behind eventual World Indoor Champion, the United States’ Christian Coleman, 6.71, and Sweden’s Odain Rose, 6.75. Though the time allowed him into the semis as an automatic qualifier, Collins was a no-show in heat two, where he would have challenged Coleman, 6.45, again. Collins ended his career having notched a gold and four bronze medals at the World Championships, two World Indoor silver medals but may have rued missing an Olympic accolade to go with his long list of achievements.
