    From what I understand, the shrimp-like krill are usually found in large
    swarms and feed on algae (as on the boat bottom), so that although they are
    very small, thousands of them nibbling can make quite an odd noise when
    heard from inside the boat. I have only ever heard them in the warmer
    climes.

    > A friend of mine lives aboard in Jacksonville (FL) and has heard the
    noise. The first time around it puzzled and worried him. I don't remember
    exactly what he called them but I think it was some type of small "shrimp"
    or similar critter. He confirmed that it was marine life, not fiberglass
    toredos, and has since learned to ignore them.
