Still wondering how plankton swims?

The open sea is a pelagic ecosystem (Pelagic is a term that refers to a part of the sea or ocean, that is not near the shore nor near the bottom), in wich the living components are plankton an nekton.

Plankton (singular plankter) are a diverse group organisms that includes microalgaes (phytoplankton) -both first gif- and animals (zooplankton) that float along at the mercy of the sea’s tides and currents.

Several structural features and behaviors have evolved to keep afloat organism that are not strong swimmers. some plankton species display a number of interesting adaptation that help them avoid predation. Many planton and nekton swim by cilia, flagella, appendages and undulatory tails

Some are babies (correct term is larva) that will grow into strong-swimming, non-planktonic adults. Others will remain plankton for their entire lives, also jellyfish. Most of the plankton in the ocean are micro-algaes, It is estimated that 80% of the oxygen on earth is produced by phytoplankton.

Quod pectus, quod crura tibi, quod bracchia vellis,
quod cincta est breuibus mentula tonsa pilis,
hoc praestas, Labiene, tuae, quis nescit, amicae.
cui praestas, culum quod, Labiene, pilas?
— 

“You pluck your chest, your legs, your arms, your cock is surrounded by trimmed short hairs; everyone knows you maintain this for your girlfriend, Labienus. But for whom, Labienus, do you maintain your ass hairs?”

Palik: plus my feet are like snowshoes, i had to dig a hole just to get to eye level with you.

Palik, you have no right to complain. you agreed to live on that planet with your wife knowing full well how the seasons are. Its not her fault you’re cold blooded and will die in temperatures cold enough to freeze water.
