Video @ladzinski / Relics from a century ago, #bluewhale bones decorate the rocky shores on a remote island in the Antarctica Peninsula, a haunting reminder of the whaling years. Nearly a century ago the blue whale, the largest animal in earths history, was nearly hunted to extinction. Now, some hundred years later, the waters of Antarctica are being fished for something much smaller, Krill. These tiny shrimp are the life line to the vast majority of animals on the Antarctica peninsula. Over the years Krill have become fished heavily by man, used primarily for their high omega 3 nutrients. Its incredibly important that we make good decisions regarding these fishing guidelines internationally to ensure that the numbers are sustainable for the wild residents of Antarctica - some 11 million+ breeding pairs of penguins alone depend on krill, as well numerous species of whale and seals.

    I agree and will never take krill supplements. I try to tell others but few understand the ocean and it's inhabitants come first.
