    Antarctic krill harvested from Southern ocean during the First Indian Antarctic Krill Expedition, was processed onboard FORV Sagar Sampada and the biochemical parameters of frozen stored samples were studied. The mince was extracted and various products were prepared. The chemical composition are similar to other related species. The fluoride in the shell migrated into the meat on frozen storage to the tune of 44% after three months.
