Krill

Namibia

Krill such as light euphausid (Euphausia lucens) are one of the most important food source for fish, whales and many other predators. They resemble shrimps in appearance, swimming forever by propelling themselves through the water using their hairy abdominal appendages (pleopods). Thin thoracis limbs are edged with rigid hairs which form a funnel-shaped basket, enabling water to be sieved through. Only 15mm in size, vast swarms swim near the surface of Namibian waters during daylight hours from the Kunene River mouth south to Mwe Bay, Terrace Bay, Torra Bay, Jakkalsputz, Wlozkasbaken, Henties Bay, Swakopmund and Walvis Bay and Luderitz.
