The Life of Krill
In the ITZ
All About It...
Living in the middle tide zone can cause interrupted feeding. Krill can survive up until 200 days without eating. During this time they shrink.
Special body adaptions: Krill has adopted shrinkage as a mechanism to deal with climate change.
Wave action and tides normally do not affect krill because they all stay in large swarms.Diet: Phytoplankton, copepods, zooplankton, algae
Whales, Penguins and seals eat Krill!
