Krill fishing is harming Antarctic ecosystems

This report from the UK Changing Markets Foundation investigates the impacts of krill fishing in the Antarctic. Krill - tiny crustaceans that are near the base of many marine food chains - are caught for use in omega-3 dietary supplements and as feed for aquaculture. In light of krill fish’s impacts on fragile ecosystems, the report calls for an immediate moratorium on krill fishing; for retailers to phase out the use of wild-caught fish, including krill, for aquaculture; for retailers to stop selling krill dietary supplements; and for consumers to stop using krill supplements and to demand krill-free seafood.
