    Abstract

    This paper summarizes Japanese krill catch data during austral summer in 1995/96 season. Main fishing grounds were persistently formed in the north of Livingston Island throughout the season. CPUE in December was high but from January through June CPUE was comparable to the value of Livingston area in the previous fishing season. From January through early May, modal size of krill differed between shelf area and slope/outer shelf area. However, from mid-May through late June, no difference in length frequency was observed, and showed only single component with modal size of 47-48mm.
