Sigve Nordrum, Sustainability Director at Aker BioMarine said: "We are reassured that the scientific panel, after an in-depth review of the fishery, have concluded that Aker BioMarine's krill fishery does not negatively impact the krill population, does not negatively affect the ecosystem and that the fishery is well managed."
...
