    Antarctic krill (Euphausia superba) is one of the largest marine resources of animal origin protein on the planet. Krill is the key element of the Antarctic Region ecosystem. Construction of modern vessels for krill fisheries and processing is foreseen anyway; introduction of new technologies on krill catch and resulting products, such as krill oil, hidrolizates, astaxanthine-related antioxidants and other preparations.
