What are the different types of nekton of the open ocean?
Nekton is any organisim that swims freely in the ocean, whereas plankton is any organisim in the ocean that floats on the top layer of water. Nekton are multicellular and plankton are multicellular or unicellular. The Zooplankton are Multicellular and Phytoplankton are Unicellular. Nekton are Consumers but also can be Producers. For they eat plankton making them consumers, but also, we eat them ((well some of them)), so that makes them producers aswell. General forms of Nekton include Fish, Sharks, Whales, Or Jellyfish. Some Nekton can be plankton at birth and then turn into nekton. Such as fish, they are born as an egg and may float on the top of the ocean, as they grow, they develop finns and then become nekton when they hatch and can swim freely in the ocean.
