AbstractInformation is provided on the distribution, size and maturity composition of Antarctic krill (Euphausia superba) stocks in the Elephant Island and King George Island areas, and at repeatedly sampled sites to the north of each island, during January-February, 1988. The overall distributional patterns of different sizes and maturity stages demonstrated a seasonal progression of those observed in the Antarctic Peninsula region during November-December, 1987 by Siegel (1989). The krill sampled at each island site represented different size-maturity groups and demonstrated different horizontal and vertical distributional characteristics. These distributional differences may be related to the demographic differences and/or hydrographie differences between the two sites. © 1993 Springer-Verlag.
