This undated photo from NOAA Fisheries Service shows a species of Pacific krill. No one fishes for krill off the West Coast, and federal fisheries managers want to keep it that way so the tiny shrimp-like creatures remain as plentiful as possible as food for whales, salmon, and seabirds. NOAA Fisheries Service on Monday July 13, 2009 issued a final rule barring krill fishing inside the 200-mile limit in the Pacific off California, Oregon and Washington.
