Krill is one of our planet’s largest biomasses. This tiny crustacean, present in all oceans, holds a vital position in the marine food chain. Through millions of years of evolution, krill’s bioactive components and molecules have sustained Nature’s diverse species.
Here at Aker BioMarine, we develop krill-based ingredients, rich in the omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA, for nutraceutical, aquaculture, and animal feed applications.

In a world where just 3 percent of the population has adequate levels of omega-3, krill provides an easy means with which to reach optimal levels of EPA and DHA. Adequate omega-3 intake is considered important to maintaining a healthy lifestyle that can help prevent non-communicable diseases. Krill is a unique omega-3 option that offers many health benefits, plus it is 100 percent traceable, certified sustainable and comes from the pristine waters in the Southern Ocean. It offers health benefits for the heart, joints, skin, brain and much more.
Sustainable and transparent
The Antarctic krill fishery is one of the world’s most sustainable fisheries. It is also notable for minimal by-catches, fully transparent operations, and Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) certification, the highest standard for sustainable fisheries. For four years in a row, the krill fishery has received an “A” rating by the Sustainable Fishery Partnership as the only reduction fishery in the world with a biomass that is rated “in very good condition."
