Science for the People

Krill may be one of the most abun­dant forms of life on our plan­et… but it turns out we don’t know that much about them. For a cre­ate that under­pins a mas­sive ocean ecosys­tem and lives in our oceans in mas­sive num­bers, they’re sur­pris­ing­ly dif­fi­cult to study. We sit down and shine some light on these under­ap­pre­ci­at­ed crus­taceans with Stephen Nicol, Adjunct Pro­fes­sor at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Tas­ma­nia, Sci­en­tif­ic Advi­sor to the Asso­ci­a­tion of Respon­si­ble Krill Har­vest­ing Com­pa­nies, and author of the book The Curi­ous Life of Krill: A Con­ser­va­tion Sto­ry from the Bot­tom of the World”.
