This paper presents results of net sampling carried out on four marine science cruises, between 1981 and 1985, in the Prydz Bay region of Antarctica by the Australian Antarctic Division. Krill exhibited a patchy distribution and overall low abundance. The majority of sampling sites in January 1985 returned no post-larval krill or densities of <1 individual 1000 m-3. The estimated mean abundance of E. superba in January 1985 was 6 individuals or 2 g (wet wt.) 1000 m-3 integrated for the upper… CONTINUE READING
