<p>The primary food source for Adelie penguins is krill (<span class="taxon"><em>Euphausia superba</em></span>). They also consume fish, such as lantern fish and other members of the family <span class="taxon">Myctophidae</span> and Antarctic silverfish (<span class="taxon">Pleuragramma antarcticum</span>). Squid, other cephalopods, and amphipods are part of their normal diet as well. Adelie penguins store food and regurgitate it later to feed their newly hatched young.<span> (Ainley, 2002; Berger, 2004)</span></p> <p><strong>Animal Foods: </strong>Fish; Mollusks; Aquatic Crustaceans; Other Marine Invertebrates</p>
