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 organisms and microscopic algae; there are zooplankton which are invertebrate animals; and there are ichthyoplankton which consist of the larval fish components.
