    Analysis of the frequency of fish by-catch in vessel and observer data from the krill fishery is updated based on recommendations from WG-FSA-2021. A preliminary approach to estimating by-catch rates (kg fish per tonne of krill) is introduced, and, spatial and temporal patterns of fish by-catch are presented. Feedback on the approach, outlier removal method and future work is requested.
