Interesting about krill.........
Krill are small crustaceans, about 2 inches in length, of the order Euphausiacea (an order of small commonly luminescent malacostracan crustaceans related to the Decapoda, resembling shrimps, and in some areas forming an important element of marine plankton), and are found in all the world's oceans. The name krill comes from the Norwegian word krill, meaning "small fry of fish", which is also often attributed to species of fish.
Krill are considered an important tropic level connection – near the bottom of the food chain – because they feed on phytoplankton and (to a lesser extent) zooplankton, converting these into a form suitable for many larger animals for whom krill makes up the largest part of their diet. In the Southern Ocean, one species, the Antarctic krill makes up an estimated biomass of around 379,000,000 tonnes (a metric ton...a unit of weight equal to 1,000 kilograms (2,205 lb).), making it among the species with the largest total biomass. Of this, over half is eaten by whales, seals, penguins, squid and fish each year, and is replaced by growth and reproduction. Most krill species display large daily vertical migrations, thus providing food for predators near the surface at night and in deeper waters during the day.
They are the main staple in the diets of literally hundreds of different animals, from fish, to birds, to baleen whales.
Simply put, many oceanic life forms depend on krill.
