We present preliminary results on age and growth of Dissostichus mawsoni for the second season (2013/14) of the Spanish research fishing in the 58.4.1 Division obtained for growth rings on otolith readings. It is included the age-length key and growth parameters estimates by sex. Growth parameters obtained using length-age pair values are: L∞: 175.7, k: 0.1078 and t0: 1.528 for females; L∞: 150.3, k: 0.1491 and t0: 1.809 for males; and L∞: 169.8, k: 0.1087 and t0: 1.168 all combined. These results are very similar to those reported previously for the first season (2012/13) although they differ slightly with the values used in the Ross sea assessment for males.
