The importance of krill

"Simply put, without krill, most of the life forms in the Antarctic would disappear."

"Alarmingly, there are recent studies that show Antarctic krill stocks may have dropped by 80 percent since the 1970s."

Interesting facts:

"Scientists estimate that the total weight of all the Antarctic krill is more than the total weight of all humans on Earth."
