Hill+Knowlton Strategies has tapped sister firm, Prime Policy Group, to represent Norway’s Aker Biomarine and its effort to promote the benefits of krill oil to supplement the nutritional needs of the US active military and veterans.

Krill are tiny crustaceans that constitute one of Earth’s largest biomasses.

Aker Biomarine debuted in 2006 to document and develop the beneficial effects of krill in fish, animal and consumer markets.

It launched a research study with the Pentagon to determine if consumption of omega-3 makes soldiers more robust.

Prime Policy Group’s five-member lobbying team features Pamela Turner, who was assistant secretary for legislative affairs at the Dept. of Homeland Security under Tom Ridge and Michael Chertoff; Stefan Bailey, press secretary for Baron Hill (D-IN), and Ann Adler, chief of staff to Senator Robert Byrd (D-WV).

WPP is parent of Hill+Knowlton Strategies and Prime Policy Group.
