    Commercial fish stocks around South Georgia have been declining since the early 1970's. A survey to monitor these stocks was carried out from December 1987 to January 1988. It complements earlier surveys in the same area and showed that most of the stocks are continuing to decline. Notothenia rossii is showing no signs of recovery and Champsocephalus gunnari is likely to continue declining in abundance.
