    Current velocity data from a single time realisation of the FRAM model are presented for particular areas of the Scotia Sea. The regions are based on the CCAMLR sub-areas and also include a more detailed area around South Georgia. Mean current velocities have been calculated for region boundaries over the upper 250m of the water column. These have been combined with estimates of krill density and standing stocks to consider the large scale flux of krill through the regions and estimate residence times
