The food chain in the Great Barrier Reef begins with the producers like giant kelp and phytoplankton. The primary consumers are zooplankton and dugong. The secondary consumers are things like the anemonefish and the whale shark. Third level consumers are the manta ray and the blue-ringed octopus. The Apex predators in the Great Barrier Reef are tiger sharks and moray eels.
