    Antarctic krill (Euphausia superba) harvested during the First Indian Antarctic Krill Expedition were subjected to primary processing like freezing, preparation of minced meat etc. on board the vessel. On reaching the shore these primary products were further processed into several value added products which included dried, canned, frozen and other speciality products and by-products. Biochemical, bacteriological and organoleptic assessments of many products were carried out. The details of the work carried out and the results obtained are summarised in this paper
