Industry Outlook

Krill are small, up to 6 cm, shrimplike shellfish at the base of the ocean’s food chain. Including 85 species of krill, the total estimated biomass of between 400 Mn and 600 Mn tones in 2016-17.  For claimed health benefits of krill oil, including the management and treatment of conditions, such as hyperlipidemia, inflammation, and arthritis, there has been a noticeable increase in research and promotion of krill oil in recent years. Additionally, because krill oil contains the same docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and omega-3 fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) found in fish and fish oil and phospholipid-derived fatty acids (PLFA), mainly phosphatidylcholine, known as marine lecithin. Krill oil is growing more and more popular in the public eye and in the media, as consumers are becoming more aware about the positive health benefits to the human body than fish oil. Krill oil is viewed as a viable alternative to fish oil to deliver the health benefits associated with EPA and DHA.

Krill oil can help lower blood fats and increase high-density lipoprotein (HDL), due to the presence of astaxanthin, an antioxidant that comes from the algae krill feed on, which gives krill their pink color. The majority of krill is harvested for aquaculture feed, but krill harvested for human consumption is one of two species: Euphausia Superba, or Antarctic krill; and Euphausia Pacifica, Pacific krill.
