    The fish sampling protocol (K12 form) was developed to ensure that small/larval fish, that  may go undetected in larger samples, are recorded using a sorting method with a standard sub-sampling approach that allows the user to re-sort smaller samples and maximises potential to detect by-catch.
    This paper uses data collected using the fish sampling protocol (K12) during 2010 and 2011 in order to estimate finfish by-catch in the krill fishery.

    The information regarding by-catch of finfish in the krill fishery is limited and 2010 was the first year when the simplified sub-sampling method was used.  With more data from the upcoming season and greater observer coverage across the fishing fleet, better by-catch estimates should be able to be generated.
