Caption: Antarctic krill (Euphausia sp.). Euphausids are small, shrimp-like creatures. The majority of the euphausids are oceanic, living in large shoals of hundreds of millions of individuals. Different species seem to be very specific to a certain temperature and salinity. Krill are a major food species for a wide array of oceanic creatures, ranging from small fish such as sardines and herring to the largest animals alive, blue whales.
