    Two sequential groundfish surveys in January-February 2000 revealed very different distribution of Raja georgiana, rather abundant species on the South Georgia shelf. The adult rays longer 206 mm were not caught during the second survey, the first one did not reveal such anomaly. The reasons which may caused such an absence are discussed.
