Whale of a Time
There have been demonstrations about the selling of krill oil in stores (notably Barratt & Holland and Boots) and even a letter to the former group from the UK parliament on the issue(https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2018/mar/27/campaigners-call-on-uk-retailers-to-stop-stocking-antarctic-krill-products). The oil is marketed as a supplement rich in omega 3 oils with potential beneficial effects on the risk of heart disease in humans. The objectors are unconvinced that the Antarctically-sourced material is sustainable and fear that removal of these small crustaceans (at the base of the food chain) imperils many reliant species in the region, including penguins and whales.
