    This paper provides a summarized description and analysis of the activities carried out by the Chilean krill fishing ship Antarctic Endeavour throughout its first year of operation (2017-2018), which was mainly destined towards testing its fishing systems and new equipment installed for the production of krill meal. Effort, catch and CPUE, and the length frequency distributions of captured krill are recorded per trip and Subarea. Additionally, information is given on the yield obtained in meal production and the conversion factor determined in the reduction process. Finally, movements of the ship between extraction zones during each fishing trip are described
