    The new continuous krill fishing system uses both a small-meshed midwater trawl and a powerful pumping system for continuous pumping the catch out of the trawl bag. It was discussed the potential threats of new technology to Antarctic marine ecosystem. It was shown that application of this fishing technology may result in considerable by-catch of the juvenile fish and larvae in krill fishery.
