ANTARCTIC KRILL, Euphausia superba

The unique properties of krill and the oil extracted from it depend on the ecosystem in which it lives, what it feeds on, and how it is harvested.

Krill swarms can be as long as six kilometres (approx. 3 miles) in length and have a density of up to one million individuals per cubic meter (approx. 35 cubic feet). Antarctic krill are low on the food chain, so they don’t consume and therefore accumulate heavy metals and contaminants to the degree that other marine species do (i.e., fish). Further, the relatively sparse commercial activity in the Southern Ocean significantly contributes to the purity of krill’s environment.

Euphausia superba has a maximum body length of six centimeters (approx. 2 ¼ inches), weight two grams and a lifespan of five to six years. Krill have external gills and extremely active digestive enzymes . Krill get bigger by molting, periodically discarding their shell to allow growth while the new shell is still soft.

Krill never touch the ocean bottom like crabs and lobsters do. They constantly move up and down in the ocean, often in columns, searching for algae at night in shallow waters and hiding from predators by day in deep water. They are also filter-feeders, which means they feed by passing water through specialized filtering structures to extract algae. Krill’s six front legs and stiff hairs on the inner side are responsible for collecting these microscopic algae from the water and transferring it to the mouth. Krill do not have the ability to build up large fat deposits, so they survive in the winter on algae that grows on the underside of pack ice. Besides serving as a food source, the ice also provides protection from predators and commercial harvesting, thus allowing enough time for the krill population to recover from the summer season when most harvesting activity takes place. The entire fishery currently harvests 200.000 tons, the 0,03 % of the krill biomass of 60,3 million tons in Area 48 of Antartcic sea, annualy.
