I have used krill but heard that harvesting it was very damaging to the ecosystem. Worth a thought for the environmentally conscious.

That was literally all I heard. It was a snippet from somebody who owns a supplement line who wouldn't produce a krill product.
After doing a quick Google search for you here is a paragraph from omega-research.com.
The increased ﬁshing of krill has lead to grassroots protests and a call to action by The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Scientists, ﬁshery groups, and federal environmental organizations like the NOAA have all voiced concerns about the potential impact of increased krill ﬁshing. Due to these concerns, the ﬁshing of krill has been banned on the West Coast of the US, and has been strictly limited in places like Norway and Antarctica1. In contrast, ﬁsh oil supplements are predominantly produced from sardines and anchovies, species that are currently in abundant supply, ﬁshed well below mandated limits, and are considered ideal species for sustainability, given their short reproductive cycles. A study published in the journal, Science, by marine conservation biologists also suggested that ﬁshing should concentrate more on these pelagic species, in order to reduce the dependence on ﬁsh species currently threatened by overﬁshing2."
I hope that helps.

Swanson sells Krill Oil capsules that are very reasonably priced. That capsules do smell fishy thou- but I haven't had any fish burps issues with them.

You might have already talked to dsade about this rodja, but i though he was going to be doing a krill oil with genomyx. I though they were going to be out sometime at the end of November, begining of december.
heres the last thread i seen about it.

We're just waiting on labels. For those that are curious, we also switched over to the Superba brand as well.

For the ill informed amongst us, what are the benefits of Krill Oil over standard Fish Oil/Omega 3's? Also what would a comparable dosage be? I currently take 4 caps of Nutraplanets which turns out to be about 1200 mg combined DHA/EPA.

Perfect for use on cycle/Post Cycle at slightly elevated dosages (1.5 grams/day) then for long term use at regular dosage (1 gram/day).
It also helps maintain cellular membrane fluidity, which greatly assists in any membrane-bound receptor function (AR's, etc.)

Potential health-promoting effects of astaxanthin: A high-value carotenoid mostly from microalgae.
Yuan JP, Peng J, Yin K, Wang JH.
Guangdong Provincial Key Laboratory of Marine Resources and Coastal Engineering, School of Marine Sciences, Sun Yat-Sen University, Guangzhou, P. R. China.
The ketocarotenoid astaxanthin can be found in the microalgae Haematococcus pluvialis, Chlorella zofingiensis, and Chlorococcum sp., and the red yeast Phaffia rhodozyma. The microalga H. pluvialis has the highest capacity to accumulate astaxanthin up to 4-5% of cell dry weight. Astaxanthin has been attributed with extraordinary potential for protecting the organism against a wide range of diseases, and has considerable potential and promising applications in human health. Numerous studies have shown that astaxanthin has potential health-promoting effects in the prevention and treatment of various diseases, such as cancers, chronic inflammatory diseases, metabolic syndrome, diabetes, diabetic nephropathy, cardiovascular diseases, gastrointestinal diseases, liver diseases, neurodegenerative diseases, eye diseases, skin diseases, exercise-induced fatigue, male infertility, and HgCl(2)-induced acute renal failure. In this article, the currently available scientific literature regarding the most significant activities of astaxanthin is reviewed.

the genomyx line is looking better every day
I used the RPN Krill oil for most of the spring and really found it to improve mood as well as simply giving me the feeling of being well covered on the general health end of my supplementation.

I just checked my bottle of superba from swanson. The stats are different than the website. It contains 40mcg of astaxanthin per softgel. This is from a bottle I purchased last week. It reads:
500mg Superba Krill Oil
110mg Total Omega
