Foraging behavior of antarctic krill Euphausia superba on sea ice microalgae

The feeding behavior of antarctic knll Euphausia superba on ice algae was observed in situ and in the laboratory. Field observations by divers confirm that knll uLhze natural sea ice microalgae for food. Laboratory investigations show that melting ice releases algae into the water column which induces area-intensive foraging behavior in M1. This behavior is… CONTINUE READING
