AnswerKrill eat small animals called zooplankton. Zooplankton in turn eat phytoplankton, the 'grass of the sea', which are extremely small plants that are are nurtured by minerals that come up in cold water from the ocean floor toward the upper levels of water in the ocean.

Krill also eat algae, a green plant the grows on rocks or is located in water. But krill also eat plankton, until they get eaten by whales, penguins and seals.

Phytoplankton
Krill, those tiny crustaceans that are near the base of the marine food chain, are often found filtering out phytoplankton, specifically a type of tiny algae knows as diatoms. They will also eat almost anything else organic that they can grasp and devour.

They can eat zoo plankton which eats phytoplankton. Phyto plankton is a microscopic plant that zooplankton eat.
Krill eat phytoplankton which are small almost micro organisms sort of like tiny plants but more like cells since krill are so small that is all that they eat.
