Since krill oil is obtained from species related to shrimp, people with shrimp allergies might also react to krill oil. Also, some potential hazards of high omega-3 fatty acid intakes for some people that have been suggested relative to fish oil might also apply to krill oil. No side effects from taking krill oil supplements have been reported, but human trials have not closely monitored people taking krill oil for adverse effects.
