Krillsea Group AS
Krillsea Group (Krillsea) will supply naturally pure and functional marine ingredients and products from a sustainable Antarctic Krill fishery in the Antarctic Ocean. The ingredients are to be used in foods and feeds.
Krillsea works jointly with the Norwegian University of Life Science (UMB) and Aquaculture Protein Centre (APC) for responsibly and sustainably harvest and process krill. Our approach is to use state of the art, krill adapted technology to obtain highest possible resource utilization with minimal environmental impact. The Norwegian University of Life Sciences is a leading international centre of knowledge, focused on higher education and research within environmental- and biosciences. UMB focuses specifically on biology, food, environment, land use and natural resource management.
Antarctic Krill (Euphausia Suberba)
The main components in krill are Protein and Fat (lipids). The high nutritional value of krill is one of the reasons that it is being called the food of the future. Antarctic Krill is especially known because its high level of Omega 3 fatty acids bound to phospholipids, the antioxidant astaxanthin and its other positive and health promoting functions.
The Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR) is the international organization responsible for managing the commercial harvesting and conservation of marine living resources in the Antarctic Ocean. It actively promotes responsible fishing and preservation of the fragile ecological balances in this region. Utilization of the krill biomass is important to provide for the world’s increasing need for human nutrition. This can be obtained through using krill products directly in food production and food supplements or indirectly through feed to fish and animals consumed by humans.
