Krill - a sustainable marine ingredient for aquafeeds

The roots of the global krill fishery

Did you know that krill have the biggest biomass of any animal species on earth – twice as much as humans, and they’re present in all the oceans. However, it is only in Antarctica that they school in high enough densities to be caught commercially, so this is where the krill fishing industry has developed. The Soviet Union were the pioneers – during the 1960s they had over 100 krill fishing vessels and, up until the collapse of the state, we heard that they were canning cooked krill and feeding it to their troops.
