Data from: Bacterial epibiont communities of panmictic Antarctic krill are spatially structured

Laurence Clarke, Leonie Suter, Rob King, Andrew Bissett, Sophie Bestley & Bruce Deagle
Antarctic krill (Euphausia superba) are amongst the most abundant animals on Earth, with a circumpolar distribution in the Southern Ocean. Genetic and genomic studies have failed to detect any population structure for the species, suggesting a single panmictic population. However, the hyper-abundance of krill slows the rate of genetic differentiation, masking potential underlying structure. Here we use high-throughput sequencing of bacterial 16S rRNA genes to show that krill bacterial epibiont communities exhibit spatial structuring, driven...
