Krill caught in 1998/99 was taken in Subareas 48.1 (38% of total catch), 48.2 (49%) and 48.3 (13%). As in recent past years, only grounds in Area 48 were fished. Catch and effort data and observer data submitted to the Secretariat are discussed, together with other information on krill obtained at the request of WG-EMM.
