    Icthyoplankton sampling was carried out by the New Zealand bottom longliner Avro Chieftain in the Ross Sea Sub Area 88.1 in the 2002-03 fishing year. Four direct haul samples were taken with a UNESCO WP2 net to a maximum depth of 1620 m in areas where mature D. mawsoni had been observed. No Dissostichus eggs or larvae were observed. Larvae of Kreffichthys anderssoni and Electrona antarctica, and two unidentified egg types were found.
