Crazy for Krill
  • General public
The Institute of Marine Research in Norway sent its most advanced research vessel, G. O. Sars, on a three month long cruise in the Southern Ocean as part of the IPY. Amongst its goals were to learn more about the acoustic properties of krill and a better understanding of the mesopelagic ecosystem in the Atlantic part of this vast ocean. A cruise journal was published on a daily basis on the internet reporting on the various activities and life onboard the vessel. This cruise journal is now published as a book where the pictures and the impressions are given priority. The book is published in Norwegian with the title 'Vill etter krill'. Literally translated Crazy for Krill.
