Update to May 2008 entry...The Mercola krill oil developed a fishy smell after a few days so I would not recommend it over the Jarrow brand. I much prefer purchasing from Iherb.

This product reduce the astaxanthin amount from 1.5mg to 50 mcg. I have to take a extra astaxanthin from another brand (Astavita AstaReal), But still a good product.
Krill oil is great, but the new forumulation smells terrible

This is the same Krill oil I had been buying and that I have liked (partly because it never had any fishy odor), but something really changed since my last order! I recently ordered two bottles and upon opening the first bottle, my husband and son immediately covered their noses. Very nasty, strong fishy smell. I thought it might be just that bottle, but the other one is the same way. Upon closer inspection, I noticed that the ingredients other than the krill oil itself are different. Interesting. I got on Jarrow's website to see if they sell more than one krill oil, but all I could find is the "new" one. So apparently the formulation changed. The smell is more than I or my family can take, so after these bottles are finished I will need to find another brand.
Can't see prominent results

So, would rather go for NKO products which are more scientifically proven wrt TRG/CHOL/CRP,( C-reactive protein )lowering.
Too soon to tell...

I am loyal to Jarrow due to their consistent quality. Krill oil interests me as the omega fatty acids are supposed to be absorbed more so than fish oil. It has only been a few weeks so I cannot say if Krill oil is more effective than fish oil. Fish oil is more inexpensive, which may prompt me to buy it instead of krill oil next time.
