Pic of the day - Krill: more than a dietary suppliment

via 1x

"Antarctic krill is being harvested around the Antarctic Peninsula in a controversial new fishery. Although the number of krill is unknown, it was still given a "sustainable" rating by the Marine Stewardship Council which has cast doubt on their standards. This is arguably one of the most important organisms living in one of the most globally important ecosystems on the planet. By harvesting krill, we are putting the health of the Antarctic ecosystem at risk." by Justin Hofman
