Plankton are very small organisms that live in the world's oceans. There are two main categories of plankton; phytoplankton and zooplankton. Phytoplankton are small plants that cause the color of the oceans in some places to be green. They also make up the largest single biomass in the world. Zooplankton are small animals that eat phytoplankton.

Thanks for the feedback!
Plankton can be found anywhere basically in the oceans but they are pretty much everywhere the sun shines.
At fish stores.
Many animals, including whales, would have problems adapting. Also, the oxygen produced by the photosynthesis of some plankton would have extremem affects on the atmosphere.
From a local beach.
by using a very fine net! *ride a speedboat. *put the net UNDERwater. *wait Go to a lake BEFORE you do these stuff
Phytoplankton and zoo plankton are examples of plankton
Plankton are an aquatic organism. There are three classifications of plankton and it is based upon their phylogeny. There are the phytoplankton which are photosynthetic or…ganisms and microscopic algae; there are zooplankton which are invertebrate animals; and there are ichthyoplankton which consist of the larval fish components.
Plankton are mostly tiny animal and plant organisms that float or weakly swim in the ocean's surface waters. Some plankton are single-celled while others are multi-celled---wi…th some forming colonies. The word plankton comes from the Greek planktos, meaning drifting or wandering. The organisms that make up plankton are very numerous and diverse; they can be grouped in many different ways. One division is based on the ability for photosynthesis; those plankton (mostly algae) that are capable of this process are called phytoplankton. Non-photosynthesizing (often termed animal) plankton are called zooplankton. The divisions of plankton are not made based on plant or animal characteristics---because some plankton can exhibit traits of both plants and animals.
- tissues denser than water so they can float - transparent bodies provide camouflage - migration abilities to???? - numerous pores and spines - produce carbohydrates,… fats, proteins, and oxygen by catching sun rays
Some plankton are bacteria, such as phytoplankton and zooplankton. Others, such as moon jellyfish are not.
No, plankton tend to be unicellular organisms. Vegetables are edible parts of plants and are always multicellular.
Plankton is real because if you check in a book a plankton is a real live sea creature
