    This paper provides a summary description and analysis of the activities the fishing ship Antarctic Endeavour carried out in the Antarctic krill (Euphausia superba) fishery to produce krill meal between December 2020 and November 2021. The effort, catch, CPUE, and length-frequency distributions of captured krill are recorded per trip and sub- area. Also, trip-by-trip bycatch data from each Subarea is provided. Information is also given on the yield obtained in krill fishmeal production and the reduction process conversion factor. Finally, this vessel's performance is compared in the four periods it fished for krill.
