    This paper presents an analysis of data gained from an eight-year tagging programme of Patagonian toothfish (Dissostichus eleginoides) in Subarea 48.4. It describes the tagging procedure, the information gained about biology, growth and movement of Patagonian toothfish, and looks at the potential link between statistical subareas 48.3 and 48.4. The characterisation of tag recapture data from Subarea 48.4 shows that the tagging programme is successful in providing substantial information for the stock assessment.
