    We performed a review of the commercial trawl systems based on information provided in the krill fishery notifications.  We provide scheme to streamline trawl systems in krill fishery using the general terms for all trawl in the krill fishery recommended by TASO (SC-CAMLR-XXVIII, Annex 9, 2009) and provide proposals to streamline the description of trawl  constructions   for better understanding the nature of the catch at length data.
