How will krill harvesting affect the environment and marine resources?
Responsible and sustainable management of krill, a key species in the Antarctic ecosystem, is important. Krill harvesting is regulated by CCAMLR, the treaty-based organization responsible for preserving the resources of the Antarctic. Aker BioMarine cooperates closely with CCAMLR and WWF to protect the region’s ecosystems and the environment. Eco-Harvesting, Aker BioMarine’s krill harvesting technology, brings krill on board alive — and processing begins immediately. Eco-Harvesting results in minimal environmental impact. Our innovative, sustainable krill harvesting will allow future generations to reap bounteous harvests of krill for yet-to-be-developed uses of this tiny but nutrition-packed crustacean.
