  1. planktonic algae

    Planktonic algae are microscopic organisms that live and float in the water column of freshwater or marine environments. They are a type of phytoplankton, which conduct photosynthesis, converting sunlight, carbon dioxide, and nutrients into oxygen and organic material. These algae are a fundamental part of the aquatic food web, as they serve as a primary food source for a wide range of organisms, including zooplankton, small fish, and filter-feeding organisms. Planktonic algae can vary greatly in size, shape, and color.
