What are krill?

Krill are small shrimp-like crustaceans, with big black eyes and a reddish semi-transparent shell, that live in every ocean of the world.


Fascinating creatures

Krill make up one of the largest biomasses on Earth and are a vital food source for most sea life, such as whales, seals, penguins, squid and fish.

They live in huge swarms in the ocean, where they feed on phytoplankton.

There are 85 krill species around the world, but OCEANO3 Krill Oil is extracted from Antarctic Krill, found in the Southern Antarctic Ocean.

What’s so special about krill oil?

The oil extracted from krill is loaded with omega-3 fatty acids, phospholipids and astaxanthin – a powerful combination of 3 key nutrients.

Krill are also at the bottom of the food chain, meaning they are virtually free of toxins or contaminants. Another great bonus.

Krill Oil VS Fish Oil

Why OCEANO3 Krill Oil Is More Powerful  Than Fish Oil

  • 2.5 x better absorbed
  • Rich in the powerful antioxidant "astaxanthin"
  • Loaded with phospholipids, long know as the building blocks of life that are found in every cell membrane
  • Smaller, easy-to-swallow softgels
  • No fishy aftertaste
Fish Oil vs Krill Oil
Fish Oil

Harder to digest and often cause reflux and fish burps.

Krill Oil

Easily digested, with no reflux or fishy aftertaste.

What makes it good for you?


The Omega-3 in Krill oil are carried by phospholipids, long known as the “Building Blocks of Life”. Phospholipids play a vital role in the construction of cell membranes, red blood cells, brain cells and joint tissue.

Krill contains this powerful bright red antioxidant, which is up to 300 x more potent than vitamin E and A (fish oil doesn’t contain any astaxanthin).

Plenty More Krill in the Ocean

Krill is one of the most abundant biomasses on the planet. It is a food source for whales, penguins, seals and birds that repopulates itself each spring during spawning season.

Highly Regulated Fishery

The krill fishery is rigorously controlled by CCAMLR (Commission for Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources), who sets strict annual catch limits and fishing guidelines.

OceanO3 Krill Oil has been certifed by FOS for sustainable Krill Harvesting. Learn more about Friend of the Sea
