Krill fishing will one day be banned. I realize that Dr. Mercola is a big fan of krill, but I am certainly not, and if we continue to promote it and dramatically expand the market for this incredibly valuable resource we are going to cause big problems well into the future. Warming temperatures, changing currents, etc, are all changing how oceans cope with stress. Taking tons of krill and expanding this market will hasten the decline of our pelargic species. The endangered blue whale can eat some 4 to 8 tons (3.6 to 7.3 metric tons) of krill per day. Before whaling, the largest population in the Antarctic alone numbered approximately 239,000, now we have 5 - 10, 000 of these amazing creatures left in the entire world. Krill provides food for thousands of aquatic creatures due to its position in the food chain, the more we plunder the oceans the quicker we will deplete this amazing resource. Krill has virtually NO Omega 3 oils in it but is high in phospholipids, of course krill is NOT the best source of Omega 3, fish are. Many years ago, Omega 3 was extracted from deep-sea cold water fish. The cold temperatures and extreme pressures confer special factors to these fish, and consequently their oil. Today we peddle krill and even "sardine" oils as "Omega 3 fish oils". What about food based sources of Omega 3 Dr. Mercola, like flax seeds and walnuts? Let's leave krill for the creatures that depend on it with their lives. Let's stop the excess consumption of damaged fats, trans fats, saturated animal fats, and include a better balance of Omegas 3/6/9 and 12 in our diets. That way we won't need to "supplement" our diet with oils at all.
