Samples of Antarctic krill, Euphausia superba, were collected during the Discovery 2010 cruise aboard the James Clark Ross (JR177). Krill from two areas were used, one from around 60 South from the vicinity of the South Orkney Islands, and the second from north-west of South Georgia at around 52 South. All of the krill were taken by target fishing.

|Quality:||One of the -80C freezers used to store specimens at Leicester malfunctioned and consequently a large proportion of the samples were destroyed, both raw samples (i.e. frozen animals) as well as processed samples (RNA and proteins).|

|Detailed Location||Near South Orkney Islands|
|Location||South Atlantic Ocean|
|Detailed Location||North-West of South Georgia|
|Data Collection:||All of the krill were taken by target fishing mainly using the RMT8 net based largely on observations of krill swarms using the EK60 echo sounder. The nets were towed for only a short time and, after hauling, the krill were transferred as quickly as possible to the cold room for sorting.|
|Data Storage:||Samples are stored at BAS and Leicester University|
