    Abstract

    One of the non-solved problems in krill exploitation has been the by-catch of fish larvae that use (or co-occurred) the krill swarms as their habitat. The detection of this problem started together with the massive antarctic krill exploitation during the 80's. There has been recognized several fish species whose larvae develop within the krill swarms, nevertheless, few have been the quantitative evaluations that give evidences that this technological interaction, is affecting the recovery of over-exploited populations or that commercial or noncommercial populations are diminishing.
