Event description

Description

A National Science Week public seminar to help people understand the connections between commercially available krill products, human health claims and the biology and ecology of this tiny crustacean.

Find out why Hobart is the global centre of krill science and krill fishery management and how each of the relevant institutions is connected through international scientific and government networks.

Experts from the Australian Antarctic Division and Menzies Institute for Medical Research will discuss their research on krill and krill oil.

CCAMLR's Science Manager will outline how fishing for krill is regulated by this international body and how decisions are informed by the best available scientific studies on krill and their ecosystems.
