85p Krill and Euphausia Superba
For most of the year huge krill trawlers operate in the far south waters of Antarctica but in winter when the pack ice forms they move north to the relatively ice-free waters of South Georgia to continue fishing for krill. Krill is a small, shrimp-like creature, which can be eaten by humans but is also used as food for fish farms. During the fishing season the trawlers go into Cumberland Bay on the northeast side of South Georgia to transfer their catch onto larger reefer ships for transport back to the markets
