The companies responsible for 85% of krill fishing in the Antarctic have announced their decision to “voluntarily permanently stop” krill fishing in some of its main operational areas. This follows a global campaign by Greenpeace to protect the Antarctic ecosytems and wildlife, which have been reported to be under threat by The Guardian. The Association of Responsible Krill (ARK) companies have also backed the creation of Antarctic sanctuaries, areas of protected marine zones where no-fishing would be allowed.
