WWF-Norway and Aker BioMarine work together for sustainable management of krill in the Southern Ocean. WWF-Norway commends Aker BioMarine for achieving Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) certification of its krill fishery, and its commitment to assist with further research and advocacy to ensure this fishery is sustainably managed.

WWF-Norway is working together with Aker BioMarine to help it meet key MSC certifications requirements, including mapping its fishing activities against local predator populations and ensuring that its fishing operations do not cause serious harm to the ecosystem. Aker further utilizes independent observers during all fishing operations and contributes to research by allowing other scientists on the vessel at no cost.
