Tiny Antarctic creatures provide US$8.6 billion of carbon storage via their poo
A new analysis by an Imperial researcher for WWF shows krill play a vital role in keeping carbon out of the atmosphere. The analysis, conducted by Dr Emma Cavan from the Department of Life Sciences (Silwood Park) at Imperial, suggests krill should be valued beyond their worth as a fished resource. Life on Earth clearly has an important role in carbon cycling and sequestration.
