4 Phytoplankton are the foundation of the aquatic food web, the primary producers, feeding everything from microscopic, animal-like zooplankton to multi-ton whales.
5 The zooplankton, which encompass a wide range of little organisms from single-cell protozoa to creatures such as jellyfish, krill and copepods, provide the basic link in the ocean food chain.
6 Phytoplankton are typically eaten by zooplankton - tiny marine animals - which themselves are prey for small fish and other animals.

8 However, the results also show that zooplankton should boom in these warmer areas, which could benefit certain fisheries.
9 adds that even though overall biological productivity declined as temperature rose, the increase in zooplankton could benefit fish that eat them in nutrient-rich waters.
10 The tubs that got additional nutrients were another story: the zooplankton in warmer water became more abundant while the Numbers of phytoplankton fell.
11 Since the phytoplankton are more widely distributed, predators (zooplankton) have a harder time locating and feeding on them.
12 As zooplankton become more abundant and eat more phytoplankton, the population of phytoplankton should shrink.
13 Now, the zooplankton consume the phytoplankton more quickly than they can multiply, bringing an end to the spring bloom.
14 Typically, this is a fish-eat-fish affair, with vegetarians like krill taking their place at the bottom (phytoplankton are plants, whereas zooplankton are animals).
15 Whereas many estimates about zooplankton had been based on biomass or functional groups, she has been trying "to put species back in the equation," she says.
16 Zooplankton on the whole are pretty small," Dewar concedes. "Because of that, there are some legitimate concerns about how effectively they can mix [layers of] water."

26 In this paper, the ecological characteristics of zooplankton in feeding grounds of mackerel and scads from Southern Yellow Sea and East China Sea were studied by comparing methods.
27 We're already finding that there's a lot of microplastics in the seaand that some of these microplastics are actually being ingested by the zooplankton that live there.
28 Such a transgenerational plant–herbivore interaction could explain the recurringly inefficient use of a predictable, potentially valuable food resource—the spring diatom bloom—by marine zooplankton.
29 45 kinds of plankton were found in Donghu reservoir, in which 28 kinds were phytoplankton species (genera), and 17 kinds were zooplankton species (genera).
30 Zooplankton was rare in the mariculture areas of the inner bay, indicating that the large-scale cage fish culture might influence the distributions of zooplankton.
