You've probably noticed krill oil for sale at your local pharmacy. Much of that krill oil, marketed as sustainable, is harvested from Antarctic waters by industrial ships that are increasingly coming into conflict with wildlife. In this episode, we chat to Alistair Allan, a campaigner at the Bob Brown Foundation who has just spent several months in Antarctic waters investigating the impact of krill fishing. Campaigners are calling for increases to krill fishing limits to be haulted at international meetings this year.
