The Curious Life of Krill - a Conservation Story from the Bottom of the World
 
(0 reviews)  

Krill. It's a familiar word that conjures oceans, whales, and swimming crustaceans. Scientists say they are one of most abundant animals on the planet. But when pressed, few people can accurately describe krill or explain their ecological importance.

Krill scientist Stephen Nicol argues that it's critical to understand krill's complex biology in order to protect them as the krill fishing industry expands. Nicol lays to rest the notion that krill are simply microscopic, shrimplike whale food but are in fact midway up the food chain, consumers of phytoplankton and themselves consumed by whales, seals, and penguins.

Ocean enthusiasts will come away with a newfound appreciation for the complex ecology of a species we have much to learn from, and many reasons to protect.
