In brief: Perhaps a bit but...

Krill oil and cod liver oil are both excellent sources of essential Omega 3 fatty acids EPA and DHA.
The main thing krill oil has that cod liver oil does not is Astaxanthin, a powerful antioxidant with many proven benefits (see http://products.mercola.com/astaxanthin/). But krill oil costs much more so you could take cod liver oil and supplement with astaxanthin. See my comment:

If you choose Cod Liver Oil make sure it has been purified to remove toxins like mercury and PCB's. See http://chriskresser.com/the-definitive-fish-oil-buyers-guide and http://www.mercola.com/infographics/fish-oil-vs-krill-oil.htm
