The analysis of euphausiid larvae collected during january 2011 in the Weddell Scotia Confluence region show a strong decrease in the abundance of Euphausia superba larvae and an increase in Thysanoessa macrura. Oceanographic conditions didn’t show any significant variations respect historical information. The analysis was conducted using cluster and correspondence analysis finding that the associations of the different larvae and especies correspond to the available information. The densities observed during the cruise were compared with densities obtained in 1981 and 1995 calculating expected values at a fixed grid of points. Significance of the differences was established using a binomial test on their signs.
