The Subantarctic Community is a loose political organization linking various territories of the Subantarctic islands. Founded in 1997, the SC was originally formed to coordinate the territories' policies on fishing, which forms a vast proportion of the subantarctic economy. Since that time, it has become more active in broader politics, campaigning for national governments to pay more attention to the needs of their subantarctic territories. The SC has informal representation in the Antarctic Assembly and the Antarctic Forum; and is responsible for organizing the Subantarctic Games.
Membership to the Subantarctic Community is very informal, and there is no official membership roster. In this table, dubious members are listed in italics; and the locations of the two SC Headquarters are in bold.
