    Physical characteristics of 437 krill aggregations detected acoustically in the area o£ S.0rkney are discribed.All swarm parameters were registered and processed automatically.The aggregations thickness and length (2.5 m and 10.4 m)were considerably smaller, then those published by. other authers. The aggregations were on average 2.2 km apart. It is shown that aggregation parameters depend in great extent from spatial resolution capability of swarm measurements.
