• Algal Omega-3 vs. krill Oil.

    Recent information provided by Israeli company Qualitas states that its new-to-release (November 2013) EPA-enriched algal Omega-3 source will be the only algal-based polar lipids in the market.

  • Governing South Antarctic Krill Fishing

    Can’t talk about South Antarctic krill without addressing the governing body that regulates South Antarctic krill (Euphausia superba) fishing, as well as other marine commercial activities in this area. This is the Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources, called CCAMLR.

    CCAMLR’s website (http://www.ccamlr.org) is the principal tool for communicating with its Members as well as members of the public who are interested in Antarctic marine conservation.  The website is written on CCAMLR’s four official languages (English, French, Russian & Spanish).

    The Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR) was established by the international convention in 1982 with the objective of conserving Antarctic marine life. This was in response to increasing commercial interest in Antarctic krill resources, a keystone component of the Antarctic ecosystem.

  • Understanding the South Antarctic Krill Industry

    Dear clients, colleagues and friends

    I want to welcome everyone to Tharos’ new blog dedicated to the understanding of the South Antarctic Krill industry.

    Although we will cover many different topics that at times may seem complicated, we will try to explain things in a simplified, yet detailed manner.

    The decision to start this blog has not been easy. It is not only a matter about finding ways to better communicate our ideas, but also in a manner that respects the confidentiality we must have with past and current assignments, but also in a way that creates value to the reader.  For this reason, your feedback, as a reader interested in the krill industry, is very important for us.  We very much welcome your comments, your input and involvement, and your critiques too as long as they help up raise the standard of our work.
