Pelagic trawl catches of krill were found to contain 7.8-11.2 cm long (l.t.) juvenile Chaenocephalus aceratus (Lönnberg, l906) whose morphological characters were studied. The following growth rate is hypothesised to take place during the first five years of life: 10, 20, 27, 34, and 40 cm. The fishes studied were found to feed exclusively on krill, dawn and sunset being the times of the most intensive fish feeding activities.
