WHAT ARE KRILL?
Krill are shrimp like crustaceans that live in the ocean. They measure approximately two inches (about the size of an adult’s little finger) and weigh around the same as a paperclip. The word “krill” is Norwegian for “young fry or fish” and they are also known as “Euphausia Superba”.
WHAT DO KRILL LOOK LIKE?
With large black eyes, krill are mostly translucent, although their shells have a distinct red tinge. Actual Size: 2½ inches (or your pinky finger). Krill have a hard exoskeleton, a segmented body and many legs which they use for swimming and eating. They use their frontal appendages to filter out food from the water in even the harshest Antarctic weather conditions, these are resilient little creatures!
WHERE DO KRILL LIVE?
Krill float in huge swarms in oceans all over the world. These swarms sometimes reach densities that can turn the surface of the ocean pinkish-red.
Survey results have suggested that krill density is approximately 2.5 times greater in the West Atlantic than the Indian Ocean. The southern limits of the distribution are not known exactly, as a significant proportion of the krill population extends under pack ice where it cannot be detected. Nevertheless, biomass estimates of this species suggest that it is the most abundant on Earth.
WHAT DO KRILL EAT?
They eat small microscopic plants (phytoplankton – a rich source of omega 3 and chlorophyll) that drift near the ocean’s surface and survive on carbon dioxide and the sun’s rays. Krill also eat small microscopic animals (zooplankton).
In winter, krill have to consume other sources such as algae which grow on the underside of the ice, on the sea-floor.
WHAT IS KRILL OIL AND WHERE IS IT SOURCED?
Krill oil is an omega 3 power source and considered to be a stronger option over fish oil. Unlike many fish oils, Krill oil does not contain any pollutants, so it doesn’t need to undergo the harsh processing that fish oils require.
Krill are rich in the very potent anti-oxidant Astaxanthin. As well as giving them their pink colour, it contains the health-promoting properties of anti-oxidants. Astaxanthin keeps krill oil so fresh that there is no need to add any preservatives to maintain long-term stability.
WHY CHOOSE KRILL OIL OVER FISH OIL
CleanmarineTM Krill Oil is pure, sustainably sourced and more effective than fish oil. It has been certified by the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) as being sourced from a sustainable and well-managed fishery – the first marine sourced Omega 3 Oil in Europe to bear the MSC ecolabel.
CleanmarineTM Krill Oil is:
More easily absorbed than fish oil
Studies have shown that CleanmarineTM Krill Oil provides significantly better DHA and EPA uptake in the body than fish oil – 59% better infact – this allows one small capsule a day to have the same effect as larger or a greater quantity of fish oil capsules.
More effective than fish oil
Krill Oil has now been evaluated and directly compared to fish oil in a number of clinical trials and in all cases krill oil outperformed fish oil in terms of efficacy. CleanmarineTM Krill Oil has been shown to have the same clinical benefits as fish oil for Heart Health, Brain Function and Joint Health but at much smaller doses and in addittion has been shown to have superior benefits for PMS, vision and weight loss.
100% pure and sustainable
Coming from the cleanest ocean on the planet – the Antarctic, and being low down in the food chain ensures the purity of CleanmarineTM Krill Oil without the need for the cleaning and processing that fish oils require to be consumable.
CleanmarineTM Krill Oil is also the first marine Omega 3 Oil in Europe to be certified by the Marine Stewardship Council as being sourced from a sustainable and well managed fishery.
Contains a powerful anti-oxidant
Astaxanthin, a powerful anti-oxidant that gives krill their reddish colour provides a healthy anti-oxidant boost and keeps CleanmarineTM Krill Oil fresh, preserving its delicate Essential Fatty Acids. Fish Oils do not contain astaxanthin and anti-oxidants have to be added separately later in the processing stages.
Traceable from Sea to Shelf

Has no fishy repeat!
As the Omega 3 in CleanmarineTM Krill Oil is in phospholipid form which is the same form found in our body it does not need converting before being absorbed by the body. The Omega 3 in fish oils are in Triglyceride form and require converting before being absorbed into the blood stream. This conversion process produces the “fishy burp” that is often associated with fish oil consumption. CleanmarineTM Krill Oil does not produce this repeat.
Krill form the most abundant living organism on the planet which is lucky for us as they provide one of the most promising new discoveries in the field of health supplements, krill oil. Scientists believe the total weight of all the Antarctic krill is more than the total weight of all the people on Earth.
Since 1994, the Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR) has set total allowable catch limits for the entire Antarctic of only 620,000 tons, or 1% of the total estimated biomass in the designated catch area. Krill is one of the largest in the oceans; the actual current catch in the Southern Ocean is less than 300,000 tons per year, or 0.5% of the biomass. These catch limits are under CCAMLR’s strict supervision and are regularly reassessed. In actuality, this is one of the most sustainably managed fisheries in the world.
According to the WWF, Antarctic krill is one of the world’s most underexploited marine stocks and the total catch limit of 8.6 million tonnes around the whole of Antarctica is around 40 times greater than the current annual catch of 210,000 tonnes. In contrast WWF indicated that “As many as 90% of all the ocean’s large fish have been fished out.”
ENSURE SUSTAINABLE FISHERY
Aker BioMarine developed and patented a continuous mid-water/pelagic trawl system, called "Eco-Harvesting" 2003.
This technology, uses a specially designed trawl system and direct hose connection between the trawl and the vessel, and holds a special mechanism that singles out unwanted by-catch (non-krill species) and releases it unharmed. The equipment stays under water while a continuous stream of water flows through the hose, bringing the krill live and fresh directly into the factory vessel, which allows for processing of fresh raw material with superior product quality..
"It’s a unique fishery that is a long way away. We also appreciate that, as such, it’s a fishery that brings some misgivings, which is why we want to be as transparent as we can. We are confident about our operations and want to put people at ease about them," Sigve Nordrum, Aker BioMarine sustainability director.
Certified as sustainable on 15th June 2010.
Cleanmarine® Krill Oil was the first Omega 3 Oil in Europe to be awarded MSC Certification.
The MSC was set up in 1996 by WWF and Unilever. The MSC has two standards, for sustainable fishing and seafood traceability. Fisheries and seafood businesses voluntarily seek certification against the relevant standards, which meet the world's best practice guidelines for certification and ecolabelling.
A significant investment in people, research and technology has been made to ensure the future of the krill fishery. There is a constant collaboration with regulatory and environmental authorities and stakeholders such as the Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR), the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC), and the World Wildlife Fund for Nature (WWF- Norway).
In order to achieve MSC certification, we had to provide evidence of the impact of the fishing operations, the bespoke harvesting system to prove its zero bycatch, as well as map when and where natural predators eat krill.
Nina Jensen, CEO of WWF Norway said: “To be MSC certified, a robust management system must be in place, the impacts on the ecosystem must be minimal and the target species has to be in a good condition’.
“As part of its environmental commitment Aker BioMarine has made a significant effort to reach out to the rest of the industry to communicate the importance of sustainability. Aker BioMarine also partners with various scientific entities to carry out important Antarctic ecosystem research. When buying krill oil, we encourage retailers and consumers to ensue that they products they buy and sell are certified by a credible independent third party, such as the MSC.”
Camiel Derichs, Regional Director at the Marine Stewardship Council said: “The Aker BioMarine Antarctic krill fishery has demonstrated an outstanding commitment to ensuring the sustainability of its fishing practices. Its precautionary approach to catch levels, investments in science and actions to reduce bycatch mean that it is now one of the best performing fisheries in the MSC program. Passing reassessment with no conditions or reconditions is testament to this.”
PROTECTING SEAL AND PENGUINS
Predators consume around 32% the total krill biomass each year, far more than the 1% total catch allowance for krill fishing vessels.
Taken together, the evidence is overwhelming: krill populations and predator populations of penguins, seals and whales are not being influenced by krill fishing. Current krill catch limits are so small in relation to the overall population, as to be insignificant. ‘Trigger’ levels set by the Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR) also ensure that fishing effort is spread across the whole area, rather than concentrated in one area.
Population dynamics of predators such as penguins are complex, some are decreasing others are increasing. Overwhelmingly the evidence is that these changes to krill and penguin population dynamics are being caused by oceanographic cycles and climate change, not fishing for krill. National Members of the CCAMLR annually monitor penguin breeding success in the south Atlantic, and so far have not been able to detect any impact of localized krill fishing even when this is relatively concentrated close to monitored colonies.
However, this is no reason to be complacent. CCAMLR is well known for being extremely cautious in its approach to fishing impacts on ecosystems. The matter is kept under regular review by the Commission and scientists monitor krill, penguin, seal and whale populations to ensure a sustainable future for krill and the complex and beautiful ecosystem that depends on it.
