We report results in the capture, transport and maintenance of live toothfish (Dissostichus eleginoides Smitt, 1898), to form a broodstock, for undertaking the experimental cultivation of this valuable marine fish. Emphasis is made in the causes of mortality and survival rates post capture at sea. In three years of experience was obtained an overall survival of 13% on the average, in three campaigns of capture, and a three-year maintenance of fish in 30 m3 ponds on land, in an environmental factors controlled circulating seawater system. The tanks mortality occurred mainly in the initial period to achieve adaptation in artificial habitats.
