SCAR Krill Expert Group (SKEG)

skag workshopThe SCAR Krill Action Group (SKAG) provides a forum to guide research directions, promote collaboration, improve understanding of krill biology and ecology, facilitate information exchange, and help early career scientists.

An online scientific workshop “Evaluating change within the krill-based food web and developing solutions for the future sampling of krill”, supported by WWF, was successfully held during 26-30 April, and was attended by around 100 participants each day from 19 countries.

The workshop comprised 16 science talks summarising the current state-of-the-art of both traditional and emerging methods to sample and analyse krill, focusing on their ability to observe spatio-temporal change within the krill-based food web.

This workshop report summarises the initial findings of the workshop; shares the talk abstracts; results of zoom-polling questionnaires including the early career researcher component; and shows results of the exercises.
