    A survey was conducted by the UK around South Georgia and Shag Rocks, Subarea 48.3, from 11 January to 2 February 2000, using the FV Argos Galicia. The design followed similar surveys by the UK conducted throughout the late 1980s and 1990s. The swept area estimates of the standing stock of Champsocephalus gunnari were about 24,800 t. Estimates for other major species are given.
