What do diatoms feed on?
they feed on stuff Diatoms are almost all photosynthetic. Most of the biological energy production (and oxygen production!) on earth is due to photosynthesis, and a little under half of it occurs in the ocean. Diatoms are responsible for a large proportion of the total energy production of the oceans, possibly as much as a half... They don't eat but make there own nutrients
