The SCAR Krill Action Group (SKAG) provides a forum to guide research directions, promote collaboration, improve understanding of krill biology and ecology, and facilitate information exchange. A key activity in 2021 is a scientific workshop, supported by WWF, which aims to address one of the major issues in current understanding of Antarctic krill ecology: How the krill-based food web changes over time. What do indices of krill, derived from variety sampling methods including predators and the krill fishery itself, tell us about change in the amounts and distribution of krill?
